Manual Handling Training

by Autec

More than a quarter of the accidents reported each year to the authorities are associated with manual handling, the transporting or supporting of loads by hand or by bodily force. Whilst fatalities are rare, major injuries such as fractures are not uncommon. Most of these injuries could have been avoided by using correct techniques for manual handling.

The Manual Handling Regulations came into effect on 1 January 1993. Within these regulations it is the duty of employers to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of risks whenever persons in their employment undertake manual handling operations which include lifting, lowering, pulling or pushing. Employers also have a duty under the HASAWA 1974 to provide suitable information, instruction and training to ensure the health and safety of their employees.

Who will benefit?

Employers, Managers, Supervisors, and Operatives.


To inform delegates of present legal requirements. To minimise the risk of injury. To increase awareness which will enable delegates to identify and assess potential hazards at work. This course is two part covering both principles and practise.
