Whether you complete your manual handing course online or face to face, you can ensure that you or your staff will understand how to minimise injury and lost working hours.
An employer has a legal obligation under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk to employees from the manual handling of loads. This is a legal requirement and the Regulations must be complied with (source: HSE).
- avoid manual handling operations so far as is reasonably practicable.
- assess the risk in any manual handling operations that cannot be avoided and
- reduce the risk of injury so far as reasonably practicable.
According to the HSE in 2017, more than a third of all work related illnesses are caused by Musculoskeletal Disorders, which include Manual Handling injuries. Don't let you or your business be another statistic!
