Manual Handling Training is designed to help employers ensure that they protect their workers from the risks associated with hazardous manual handling in the workplace.
The ‘Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (MHOR)‘ require that employers avoid, assess, and reduce the risk of injury from manual handling at work. In providing training for your employees, you are ensuring that you comply with UK Health and Safety legislation.
TSW’s manual handling course is aligned to the MHOR regulations and will raise awareness and reduce risk in your organisation. It will provide your workers with the required knowledge on the risk factors and how injuries can happen, and how to carry out safe manual handling, including good handling techniques.
