Manual handling guidelines
Manual handling rears its head in most industries and can cause significant issues if not addressed properly.
Manual handling consists of the lifting, holding, putting down, pushing, pulling and the carrying of objects. When done incorrectly, these tasks can have devastating effects on the person.
Have one of our highly trained health and safety experts create a bespoke manual handling risk assessment for your business which will be individually tailored to your needs.
We work together with you to identify any risks and hazards and will always recommend the best control measures that should minimise the negative effects of manual handling.
Over 1/3 of all work related injuries are from manual handling. Did you know that back injuries are one of the biggest cause of staff absence in the UK? However the good news is most are preventable!
Manual handling training is a legal requirement in any situation where your staff are required to do any lifting, lowering, pulling or pushing that carries any level risk.
Most work environments employ people who incorporate the use of manual handling in some way or another.
