Manual Handling Regulations 1992 defines manual handling as '...any transporting or supporting of a load by hand or bodily force'.
This can include activities such as taking things in and out of stock rooms, carrying packages and moving furniture around.
Our Manual Handling Regulations Poster tells you everything you need to know about handling heavy or awkward objects. It also keeps workers informed of correct manual handling regulations and reduces the risk of a workplace accident.
Manual handling injuries can occur at any time, in any place, whether you work on a farm, building site, in a hospital, factory, office, warehouse or bank.
This poster offers both text and diagrams, making it easy for an at-a-glance reference for those who may be required to lift objects in the workplace.
The poster is supplied as a full colour encapsulated poster and is 420 x 595mm in size.
