Manual handling tasks are responsible for over 35% of compensation-able injuries within Australian workplaces.

This course equips participants with skills and knowledge to shift loads using manual handling methods, including planning, risk assessment and relocating the load according to the plan.

It includes compliance with safety legislation and basic principles of safe lifting. To develop control ideas, identify the source of the risk and then determine what things about the source of risk you could change. The main sources of risk are:

-work area design and layout

-nature, size, weight or number of things handled in performing the manual task

-systems of work

-environment in which the manual task is performed.

Throughout this unit students will learn workplace procedures for:

  • Planning lifting operations
  • Injury prevention

Work must be carried out in compliance with the relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) regulations concerning the manual handling and movement of loads. It includes assessing the risks associated with relocating the load, planning the relocation process and carrying out the relocation in accordance with the plan.
