    Manual handling training claim in Havant

    Incorrect manual handling is a common cause of injuries to the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and other tissues in the limbs, neck and back. Statistics indicate that these injuries account for more than a third of all work-related illnesses and injuries reported each year to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

    The Manual Handling Operations Regulations require all employers to assess and control the risks from manual handling to the health and safety of their workers. These regulations do not expect employers to remove all potential risks to health, but to put in place measures to control the risks, as far as reasonably practicable.

    Reducing the risks of manual handling

    Manual handling training is an important part of an employer’s obligation to manage health and safety risks in the workplace. It should provide you with the information, instruction and/or supervision you require to safely perform manual handling tasks. If your employer fails to provide adequate manual handling training, and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be eligible to make a manual handling training claim in Havant.

    Making a manual handling training claim in Havant

    The law states that you have three years from the date of your accident in which to make a manual handling training claim. The longer you delay making a claim, the harder it will be for you to recover the compensation you deserve.
