Manual Handling Training

The HSE does not publish prescriptive guidance on manual handling training but in general, courses should be suitable for the individuals, tasks and environments involved. Relevant examples should be referred to during training and courses should last long enough to cover the following subject headings:-

Risk factors – Safe handling – Systems of work – Use of handling aids – Practical practice

The information above is a summary of paragraph 192 in the HSE publication L23.
Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended)
