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.
