Manual handling Training means using people to move things – an everyday occurrence in a wide range of occupations, from librarians moving large piles of books to furniture removers and warehouse workers. Health and safety legislation stipulates that measures be put in place to reduce risk of injury when people are asked to move awkward or heavy objects. Manual handling training can ensure that – when lifting and moving things is unavoidable – employees understand how to perform tasks as safely as possible.
The correct training can enable people to move and handle heavy loads safely. Risks can be minimized by:
- Using lifting aids
- Reducing or sharing the load
- Using ergonomic lifting techniques
According to the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), manual handling was the biggest cause of injury in the plastics industry in 2009/2010. It is highly likely that this is not atypical. Each business should carry out a risk assessment of its manual handling techniques and consider feasible alternatives wherever possible.
