As an employer, you must protect your workers from the risk of injury associated with hazardous manual handling. Although manual handling training is not mandatory for all employees, the law sets out how employers must deal with the risks associated with manual handling through:

  • Avoiding hazardous manual handling, so far as is reasonably practicable
  • Assessing the risk of injury from any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided
  • Reducing the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling to as low as reasonably practicable
