Manual Handling Training

TLID1001 Shift Materials Safely using Manual Handling Methods

Manual Handling Training

Manual handling covers a wide range of activities including: lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, restraining, throwing and carrying. It includes repetitive tasks such as packing, typing, assembling, cleaning and sorting, using hand-tools, operating machinery and equipment, and handling and restraining animals. Not all manual handling tasks are hazardous, but because most jobs involve some form of manual handling, most workers are at some risk of manual handling injury.

Manual handling might not seem high risk, but it is actually one of the most common causes of workplace injuries. The importance of safe manual handling techniques can therefore mean the difference between a productive day at work or being off work with a bad back! Safe manual handling techniques are important because the right technique can significantly reduce the risk of injury.

A third of all workplace injuries are the result of poor or incorrect manual handling. Appropriate procedures for manual handling must always be adhered to. Manual handling is an everyday task in most workplaces, whether you are filing paper work in the office, stacking shelves in a shop, or bricklaying on site.
