It's the Law
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure that all employees are trained and competent in manual handling. It is the employer’s duty to avoid manual handling as far as is reasonably practicable and, if this cannot be done, the employer must take steps to reduce the risk of injury.
It's Good Business
Apart from legal responsibilities the time and effort spent on training has benefits such as saving your business time, money and improving staff morale.
