Manual Handling Online Training

What is Manual Handling?

Simply, manual handling is the movement of items by human energy. Manual handling includes lifting, holding, pushing, pulling, shifting and lowering. In fact, any form of human exertion could be included – with or without the use of mechanical aids.

About the course:

  • This manual handling safety video program covers:
  • Detailed description of manual handling

The steps to deal with manual handling can often be addressed by following through a series of questions to form a manual handling procedure.

This process or the hierarchy of manual handling control measures, asks the following:

  • Must the load be moved?
  • Must it be lifted?
  • Can it be moved mechanically?
  • Can the load be reduced?
  • Can assistance be gained?
  • Is the load too heavy to safely lift?

Who it’s for:
