Manual Handling Course


What is manual handling?

Lifting, carrying, lowering, or otherwise moving a load by hand or with physical force is known as manual handling. The potential risks affect almost all employees and are the most frequent cause of workplace accidents.

Accidents involving manual handling can affect both personal and professional lives in a negative way. Since moving objects is a part of almost every job, manual handling is a problem for everyone, not just team members who must frequently lift and carry them.
