5) Conclusion

This is the final slide before the test. It summarises the training and emphasises that it doesn't matter where you lift - it could be at work, it could be while you're out somewhere, it could be while you're at home - but wherever you are you need to put proper lifting techniques into practice, or you risk seriously damaging your back!

Legislation relating to Manual Handling Including Tyres

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

What are The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992? 

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 or MHOR defines manual handling as "Any transporting or supporting of a load by hand or bodily force", this also includes lifting, pushing, putting down, pulling and carrying. They are a set of regulations designed to reduce the risk of injury to workers when manual handling by as much as possible. 

The regulations also set out clear measures for dealing with risks when involved in manual handling, these are: 

  1. Wherever possible, avoid hazardous manual handling operations
  2. If a hazardous situation can't be avoided, assess the situation and
  3. Reduce the risk of injury as much as possible

Council Directive 90/269/EEC of 29th May 1990 on the minimum health and safety requirements for the manual handling of loads where there is a risk particularly of back injury to workers.

Employers must ensure that workers receive proper training and information on how to handle loads correctly, and the risks they might be open to - particularly if these tasks are not performed correctly

Council Directive 90/269/EEC, Article 6, Section 2

The HSE suggests that, in general, manual handling courses should be suitable for the individual, tasks and environment involved; and are likely to include advice on:

  • Manual handling risk factors and how injuries can occur;
  • How to carry out safe manual handling, including good handling technique;
  • Appropriate systems of work for the individual's task and environment;
  • Use of mechanical aids;

It is important to emphasise that the training contained in this programme is invaluable not only in the workplace itself but for general everyday use outside the workplace too. After all if a member of staff injures their back no matter where they are they may need time off work and it may affect their general fitness in the short or long term.
