The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations 2007, Chapter 4 of Part 2, outline the requirements that must be adhered to in relation to manual handling. Key factors include:
- Carrying out a manual handling risk assessment of existing manual handling tasks
- Organising tasks to allow the use of mechanical or other means to avoid or reduce the need for manual handling of loads by employees in the workplace
- Providing instruction and training to relevant staff

How often is this Renewed?
The Health & Safety Authority recommend that refresher training should be provided at intervals. These intervals should not be more than every three years. Refresher training should occur where there is a change in work practices resulting in the introduction of a new system of work related to manual handling or new equipment to handle loads.
