Manual Handling Awareness

Employers have a legal duty to assess risks arising from manual handling activities. Managers and Supervisors who are carrying out risk assessments need to have the necessary knowledge and skills.

Employees who are lifting, supporting and carrying loads need to know how to understand a risk assessment and apply it to their lifting activities. This qualification ensures that attendees have the necessary depth of understanding to enable them to follow a risk assessment and handle objects with the correct lifting and handling techniques, preventing injury to themselves and others.
