Manual handling, also known as manual tasks, includes any activity where you lift, lower, push, pull, carry, move, hold, or restrain an object.

Manual handling injuries are the most common injuries suffered by workers across all workplaces in all industries. And the reality is that all of us are exposed to these risks every day in our workplace.

Do you perform manual handling tasks in a non-office based workplace such as a warehouse, transport depot, retail outlet, manufacturer, café, construction site etc.? If you do, you should complete our ‘Introduction to Manual Handling’ course. If your workplace is office based, you should complete our ‘Introduction to Office Ergonomics and Manual Handling’ course, which will be available soon.

This ‘Introduction to Manual Handling’ course may also be known as a Manual Tasks course, Hazardous Manual Tasks Course or Manual Handling Training.

  • Avatar Leticia Schumann ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    Peter and the team at Urban E Learning have been very supportive to my business and open to giving us as much assistance and support they could provide any time of the day or night. They were quick to respond to our needs to insure that … More we sorted out issues we were having with our business website in the quickest possible time frame. I had been looking for quite awhile for a team that could provide the support I needed and that I wasn't getting from my previous website hosting provider. I would recommend Urban E Learning to anyone who is not too savvy with all things website related. They are very efficient and dependable. Thank you!

    One of the best experiences I've had the pleasure of interacting with in regards to online training. The course I did (TLIF0005 Apply a fatigue risk management), is thorough and on point, and doesn't deviate from the relevant … More topic. The supplementary material is quite vast and I was able to download and keep them for future use. Overall, I'm very satisfied.
