Manual handling is any activity involving the use of muscular force (or effort) to lift, move, push, pull, carry, hold or restrain any object, including a person or animal. It covers more than lifting heavy weights and affects more than the back. Manual handling also includes:

Repetitive activity seen in assembly work sustained muscle exertion required to restrain or support a load and the effort needed to maintain the fixed postures that occur in the back and neck while typing.
This unit of competency covers identifying, assessing and controlling manual handling risks across a range of workplaces and industries.
 
Suitable for anyone requiring or interested in learning about safe lifting and moving techniques to minimise the possibility of injuries.
