Manual Handling Risk Assessment


This course is aimed at those responsible for performing a manual handling risk assessment. It will give attendees a basic understanding of the factors necessary to complete a manual handling risk assessment, and ensure their own safety and that of their colleagues and staff they supervise.

Delegates will undertake a number of practical manual handling risk assessments throughout the session. As this manual handling training course is very interactive, it is advised that delegates are reasonably fit and able to take part in the majority of practical manual handling activities, and wear clothes best to suit the occasions.

The Manual Handling Risk Assessment course is based upon the principles of safe moving and handling of loads known as the 'kinetic' approach to manual handling, and includes the following:

  • How to risk assess manual handling (risk assessment)
  • Health and Safety Legislation - the Health and Safety at Work Act and Manual Handling Operations Regulations
  • Avoiding unnecessary lifting and implementing safety controls and procedures to avoid injury
  • Practical demonstration and exercises of safe lifting techniques

  • Course Material

    Each delegate on the Manual Handling Risk Assessment course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information, guidance and forms to assist manual handling risk assessors. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
