Manual Handling Training

Manual Handling Training can aid in the prevention of disability, illness and injury in the workplace and also minimise the amount of Worker's Compensation claims and costs for insurance.

The National Standards for Manual Handling (NOHSC - 1990) and the National Code of Practice for Manual Handling (NOHSC: 2005 - 1990) provide legislation for all employers.

It is the employer's responsibility as defined by legislation:

  • To provide a safe work environment
  • To provide and maintain appropriate Manual Handling aids and equipment
  • To provide appropriate staff training
  • To identify, assess and control all the risks within the workplace
  • To keep staff informed of their rights and any changes to the Manual Handling Legislation
