Manual Handling

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, require each employer to provide adequate supervision and training and as well as undertake manual handling risk assessments. This training will support employers to demonstrate their commitment to legal obligations. It does not qualify learners to undertake manual handling risk assessments independently but will provide them with some knowledge to assist the employer in identifying and completing risk assessments.
