The workshop provides participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively identify hazards, and assess and control risks arising from manual tasks. Recognising that the participants’ roles may only be to contribute to this process, the workshop also discusses the employer’s obligations towards involving workers in this process.
This workshop forms part of the requirements for manual tasks training as outlined in the Commission for Occupational Safety and Health Code of practice: Manual tasks (2010) It is not designed to replace practical or task specific training, but instead should be provided together with practical training.
The Code explains that after training, participants should be able to recognise manual handling risks in tasks, and in consultation, decide the best way to minimise them.
