Manual Handling Training


Manual Handling refers to any workplace activity where a person exerts a force on another object or person. These tasks may require a person to grasp, manipulate, strike, throw, carry, move (lift, lower, push, pull), hold or restrain an object, load or body part.

(Hazardous Manual Tasks Code of Practice 2011. Last updated: February 2012.)


Manual handling training aims to ensure all workers have the knowledge and skills to safely assess and perform manual handling tasks. With an ageing population and, in particular, an ageing workforce, ensuring workers are trained in safe manual handling procedures is becoming increasingly important. For more information on the changes and impacts of ageing and the workforce click here.

NorthHab Physio & Fitness provides manual handling training to many different organisations including health clinics, aged care facilities, food handling, and disability service providers. Training sessions usually run for 2-3 hours and are tailored to suit the specifics of each company. Key considerations, such as the number of staff, specialised equipment used, and types of manual handling tasks, inform our training sessions to ensure the content is highly relevant to the daily demands of the workplace. A powerpoint presentation, group discussion, practical demonstrations and assessments, and question time are integrated into our training sessions. Participants are assessed against a competency checklist and given a comprehensive booklet which details the content covered in the training session as well as provides additional useful tips and exercises.

In addition to running practical training sessions, we also assist in writing and editing manual handling policies and procedures. Call us and speak to one of our friendly staff members to discuss the types of services we can provide for you and your business.
