Under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, employers are required to take appropriate steps to reduce the risk of injury to employees, this includes suitable training.  The Level 2 Award in Manual Handling, Principles and Practice combines both the theoretical and hands-on elements of the subject and teaches learners techniques to lift, carry, push, and pull objects safely within their individual capabilities.  This course raises awareness of how incorrect manual handling can cause injury. It also covers the process for carrying out a manual handling risk assessment and dynamic risk assessments.

The syllabus

  • Identify and understand the risks associated with manual handling.
  • Learn the value of risk assessment and how to apply it.
  • Make recommendations to manage risks.
  • Apply the principles of safer handling to a range of everyday manual handling tasks.

This qualification, aimed at those who carry out manual handling at work, provides essential information about manual handling hazards and their control and provides the knowledge and skills for those in the workplace, or those entering the workforce on the hazards and controls related to manual handling.  This course ensures that you meet recommendations underlined by the HSE, The Health and Safety Act 1974 and the Manual Handling Operation Regulations 1992 and provides you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to use what you have learned.  This course does not qualify learners to undertake risk assessments independently, however it will provide them with the knowledge to assist the employer in completing the risk assessment and supports employers in demonstrating their commitment to their legal obligations.
