Manual Handling Toolbox Talk (UK)
When an employee makes the effort to move or hold a load by lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying – or a combination of these operations - it is considered manual handling.

Because many lifting operations can be done using mechanical aids, those options should be explored before any manual lifting is undertaken. Manual handling is one of the major causes of work-related injuries costing over 12 million working days a year. The most common injuries include sprains, cuts, bruising, fractures – primarily affecting backs, hands, and arms. Manual Handling Toolbox Talk states that under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations an employer is required to avoid the need for employees to undertake hazardous manual handling operations. If such operations cannot be avoided, (for example by using mechanical aids) good manual handling techniques should always be followed.

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
