About Manual Handling Risk Assessment Training

Conducting manual handling risk assessments is a necessity in any workplace to maintain safety. Manual handling occurs in a vast amount of industries and settings. The loads workers may need to handle will vary, as will the measures required to reduce the risk of injury to an acceptable level.

This online course looks at how to conduct a manual handling risk assessment that addresses the manual handling risks of your workplace.

Why Is Manual Handling Risk Assessment Training Important? 

Assessing the risks of any workplace hazards, such as those posed by manual handling, is a legal requirement. Risk assessments must be suitable and appropriate given the nature of the risks involved. Where five or more individuals are employed, risk assessments must be recorded.

This training programme provides learners with an awareness of how to conduct this vital process and maintain compliance.
