Manual Handling can be defined as any transporting or supporting of any load by one or more employees, and includes lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving a load, which by reason of its characteristics or unfavourable ergonomic conditions, involves risk, particularly of back injury, to employees
Manual Handling Training is a legal requirement for all employees who may undertake manual handling. As most employees will undertake some form of manual handling as part of their job, training should be considered. If there is categorically no manual handling as part of an employee’s job then a Manual Handling Training course will not be required.
Manual Handling Training courses must be delivered by a FETAC / QQI Level 6 Certified Manual Handling Instructor. Separately the instructor must be competent as defined under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005.
All employees requiring Manual Handling Training should receive such training at periods not exceeding 3 years and certification should be kept on file.
