Manual Handling + Manual Lifting Services
Sometimes there is no other option, certain circumstances need an item to be moved by hand and this requires a considered approach. Specialist manual handling training is required to move heavy items by hand and we are here to supply that necessity. When access is tight or using lifting equipment would increase the level of risk of the task, manual handling is the best approach. All aspects of lifting work must be assessed and manual handling can sometimes be the safest method.

Our Manual Handling Service
We have provided manual handling solutions for customers such as Bowmer & Kirkland and other large building contractors. Comprehensive health and safety assessments must be carried out when performing manual handling tasks to ensure safety for both our employees, other personnel and property.
We distributed over 10,000 Kg's of glass panels throughout Manchester's City Park building. Without damaging a single panel the panels were placed across 12 floors after we assessed it to be the fastest and safest method. The access was limited and the use of lifting equipment would have increased the risk of property damage considerably.
What Is Manual Handling?
Manual handling is the transportation of a load by hand or by bodily force, including carrying, pushing, pulling, lifting, and putting down. Research suggests that more than a third of reported injuries involve manual handling, and costs the economy millions every year.
The Legal duties and obligations for manual handling are:
1. to avoid hazardous Manual Handling Operations as much as possible
2. to risk assess any hazardous Manual Handling Operation that cannot be avoided
3. to minimize the risk of injury as much as possible.
We provide risk assessments for each individual job to assess four specific areas; Task, Individual, Load and the Environment. All employees are involved in the manual handling risk assessment process and make use of all relevant manual handling guidelines.
