What is moving and handling objects?

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations define moving and handling as 'any transporting or supporting of a load (including the lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving thereof) by hand or by bodily force'.

Why is moving and handling training important?

Moving and handling is a key part of the working day for most employees; from moving  equipment, laundry, catering, supplies or waste to assisting residents in moving.

Poor moving and handling practice can lead to:

    • back pain and musculoskeletal disorders, which can lead to inability to work
    • moving and handling accidents – which can injure both the person being moved and the employee
    • discomfort and a lack of dignity for the person being moved

You must take action to prevent or minimise the risk of injury.

The most common injuries carers experience are back injuries. Injuring your back will limit your movement and your ability to care for someone. It could take a long time for you to recover. Lifting someone incorrectly can also damage fragile skin, cause shoulder and neck injuries, increase existing breathing difficulties, or cause bruising or cuts.
