What is manual handling?
Manual Handling refers to a task that requires a person to lift, lower, push, pull, carry or otherwise move, hold or restrain any person, animal or thing.
How long does a manual handling certificate last?
Manual Handling training does not have a specific expiry date. This is up to your employer’s discretion or if see fit for renewal training. For example, some employers will re-train their staff in Manual Handling if they notice incorrect lifting techniques being used. The renewal training will ensure employees’ knowledge is current and safe.
