Manual handling causes over a third of all workplace injuries. These include work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as pain and injuries to arms, legs and joints, and repetitive strain injuries of various sorts.

The term manual handling covers a wide variety of activities including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and carrying. If any of these tasks are not carried out appropriately there is a risk of injury.

Putting boxes on shelves, painting, gardening, cleaning, writing and typing are some examples of manual handling tasks.

Manual handling injuries include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Slips, falls and crush incidents
  • Cuts, bruises and broken bones
  • Hernia
  • Occupational overuse syndrome (OOS)

You should be informed and trained in:

  • Safe manual handling methods
  • Specific manual handling hazards
  • Safe work procedures
  • Use of any required manual handling aids
  • Your right to ask for help
It doesn’t matter what the size of your organization is, if you have employees (or are self-employed), health and safety should be at the top of your priority list.
