Safe Moving and Handling
Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling (QCF)
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations do not set any weight limits for lifting and carrying loads and amendments in 2002 now require employees to have adequate or appropriate knowledge or training in order to make assessments to judge whether safe moving is possible. The regulations apply to almost all work environments from offices to care homes and factories. There are different risks associated with different sectors and this accredited qualification offers learning outcomes which are suitable for all. The qualification includes:
- The reasons for safe moving and handling
- The importance of risk assessment
- The principles of safe manual handling
- The safe application of manual handling skills
The qualification provides an effective means of ensuring that employees are aware of their responsibilities and understand the principles of the safe moving and lifting of loads.
