What is Manual Handling? – It is a physical activity where a person is required to transport or support a load. This includes carrying, moving, pulling, pushing, lifting or putting down a load.
Problems with manual handling arise when the employee is required to transport or support a heavy load which could cause a back injury. The key to preventing back injury is providing your employee’s with the correct equipment.
With Health & Safety regulations being so stringent and where in every workplace there is a need for manual handling at some time every company must be aware of these regulations and employers are obliged to take precautions to avoid or reduce the risk of injury.
