What is the LITE procedure?
LITE stands for Load, Individual, Task, Environment. These four things are all important whenever you prepare to lift or move a load. You must assess the potential problems before you start!
This section contains step-by-step guides to safe lifting, including lifting from the floor, lifting from waist height, team lifts and pushing and pulling.
This is the specialised section, specifically added to cover lifting and moving tyres. It includes small tyres, large tyres and tractor tyres, 2-man lifts and team lifts.
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!
About this course
Being competent in safe Manual Handling is a legal requirement for your workplace, and this course provides everything you need to know - specifically addressing the task of moving and lifting tyres.
This Manual Handling course introduces the importance of safe manual handling in the workplace; essentially, this means the task of moving, lifting and transporting potentially heavy objects. It covers safe techniques for moving and lifting (including LITE), as well as looking at the anatomy of your back - helping you understand why it is so important to adopt best practice for lifting heavy or awkwardly shaped objects.
An estimated 909,000 working days are lost every year due to poor manual handling techniques. Poor manual handling also contributes to around 24% of injuries reported to RIDDOR. Ensure best practices and understand responsibilities for both employees and employers with our online course - It only takes 40 minutes to complete!
This course is an extended version of our best-selling Manual Handling Training programme, and is particularly suited to those working around tyres; whether it's mechanics, tyre manufacturers or fleet managers.

It was good
It was nice to see the right way of lifting and not way to hurt the back by lifting
concise and descriptive
Nicely broken down into bite size segments Nice to see actual visual representation of the lifting techniques, especially for lifting tyres.
42 minutes in 47 chunks, and for each chunk I had to both click next and then play. Doesn't do much for keeping attention up - just concentrating on clicking next, move mouse and click play, then repeat... Content ok though
very straight forward and understandable

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.
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
