Courses designed for businesses and groups needing to be legislation compliant 

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations 2007, Chapter 4 of  Part 2, outline the requirements that must be adhered to in relation to manual handling. For more information on Safety and Health at Work legislation and Manual Handling, please go to

Manual Handling is any transporting or supporting of a load, by one or more employees including lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying, or moving a load which, by reason of its characteristics or unfavourable ergonomic conditions involves risk, particularly of back injury, to employees. 

In a situation where there is no certainty as to the weight of a load, then such loads should be tested before lifting and if aids such as trolleys are required, then they should be made available.
