The aim of the course to provide office managers with an understanding of their role in helping colleagues safely lift and move loads.

Why Is Manual Handling Training for Office Managers Important? 

Manual handling causes a third of all workplace injuries and accidents, as per the Health and Safety Executive. These accidents and injuries commonly involve musculoskeletal disorders, which have severe implications for both employers and employees.

Managers and supervisors need to understand how to educate the employees to perform the manual handling tasks. This is not just a moral requirement, but a legal requirement as well. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 impose a duty on employers to protect employees from the risks of manual handling injuries and ill health.
