Manual Handling Training

A manual handling operation may be defined as “any transporting or supporting of a load (including lifting, putting down, pushing and pulling, carrying or moving thereof) by hand or bodily force.”

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (MHO) came into force on 1 January 1993.

These regulations seek to reduce the very large incidence of injury and ill-health arising from the manual handling of loads at work. More than 1 in 4 of all reportable injuries is caused by manual handling. These accidents do not include cumulative injuries, particularly to the back which can lead to physical implement or even permanent disablement.

Approximately one third of all injuries reported to the enforcing authorities are due to incorrect manual handling. Over £100million a year is lost due to injuries at work associated with incorrect manual handling.
