FACT: Manual handling is the cause of more than a third of all reported injuries, which result in employees being off work for more than three days. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) require employers to conduct risk assessments of manual handling activities that their employees undertake and to provide the appropriate training.
