engaged in manual handling must be given training in safe manual handling
Staff engaged in manual handling tasks are required to receive training in assessment of loads and how to lift and handle loads safely. Due to the wide variety of manual handling tasks, it is difficult to set down a specific training course which in content or duration would be appropriate for all situations. The course content will include both instructions and training that is customised to meet your manual handling needs.
This course will show your staff how to carry out lifting, moving, pushing and pulling tasks correctly and therefore avoid back injuries. By training your staff how to conduct themselves safely you are complying with your legal requirements. Back injuries caused by incorrect lifting techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers compensation claims.
