Manual Handling

ACL Safety Training

Manual Handling

Manual Handling is the movement of any load by pushing, pulling, lifting, putting down or carrying and it involves a high risk of injury especially to the lower back. According to the Health & Safety Authority statistics, 33% of all work-related absences reported to it last year were due to Manual Handling injuries.

In order to reduce this number and under HSA legislation, all employees must hold a valid Manual Handling certificate and this training must be provided for by their employer every 2 years.
