Manual Handling Training Legislation


Employers and PCBUs have a legal responsibility to provide a safe and healthy workplace for all employees.

The national standard for manual handling requires that all tasks in your workplace which involve manual handling are identified and that the risk or likelihood of injury is assessed. Where there is a risk of injury, suitable "control measures" must be introduced.

Control measures need to be suitable and practical.

They might include:

As a worker, if you are aware of anything in your workplace which could be a manual handling risk, you should discuss it with your manager or supervisor and try to find the best way of eliminating or reducing it.

Also talk to your health and safety representative or notify your health and safety committee if your workplace has one.
