A list of questions to ask for manual handling including tyres preparation

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 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.

Good not too long and to the point

The section about tyres would be better with actual people rather than the computer generated doing the work, I understand that this bit has been added to the original handling video but you did ask my opinion

Very informative

Comprehensive and informative training, I enjoyed the course and have now learned how to lift tyres correctly.

Absolutely helpful thank you so much

Thank you so much that’s really helpful and honestly I’m proud of myself that I can trust myself now working in manual handling jobs all because of you guys thank you so much

A well presented and informative course

I learned a great deal by taking this course. I now feel that I’m better equipped to look after my back, not just when at work, but at home or indeed in any other environment that lifting might take place. The course was very well and professionally presented, I particularly enjoyed learning about the physiology of the human back and it’s vulnerability.

well presented

Enjoyed the presentation of this course - clear, factual delivery and good background information explanation to the workings of one's back. Well done and thank you

Excellent videos and presentation.

This was a good presentation, as always with such things you think you have been dealing with it all anyway but the clear explanations cut through to add to the knowledge, the tyre moving part of the presentation seemed sli8ghtly inappropriate for our business but still good and informative, possibly with transferable knowledge to other aspects of our manual handling.

Simple and informative

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

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

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