Do your employees have to lift, lower, carry, push or pull loads? If so, then the Manual Handling Operations Regulations will apply and you must undertake a risk assessment as a result your employees will typically need awareness training.
Do your employees know about the risks associated with manual handling? Do they know how to identify obvious hazards and deal with them? Have they been trained in safe manual handling operations?
Manual handling accidents account for over 38% of all lost time accidents at work and absence from work due to back pain is second only to the common cold. Manual handling operations are also a contributory factor in the large increase in slips, trips and falls in the workplace.
The Manual Handling Awareness course from Praxis42 helps trainees understand the requirements of working safely by following the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidance notes,‘Getting to grips with manual handling – A short guide’ (INDG 143) and ‘Are you making the best use of lifting and handling aids?’ (INDG 398).
