About Manual Handling in Warehouse

In warehouses, manual handling are repetitive tasks, but each needs to be treated with due diligence and full consideration of risks and safety.

This course helps warehouse workers by providing eight principles they need to understand and implement within their manual handling operations.

Why Is Manual Handling in Warehouse Training Important?

Warehouses workers are required to lift and handle a myriad of different types of items and loads. If handled incorrectly, they can result in musculoskeletal disorders and pains and strains.

Employers have both a morale duty to prevent such injuries and ill health, but also a legal duty. They are legally obliged to provide all staff with an understanding of the hazards they face, including manual handling, as well as what employees can do to adequately reduce the risk to themselves.
