Manual Handling Training
Under the NSW WHS Regulation 2011, an employer must ensure that each worker receives training that covers the following:
arrangements for managing OHS, including reporting hazards to management
workplace health and safety procedures relevant to the worker, including the use and maintenance of risk control measures
how workers can access health and safety information that the employer is required to make available.
Employers must ensure that any person who may be exposed to a risk to health and safety:
is informed of the risk
is provided with any information, instruction and training necessary to ensure the personís health and safety.
The information, instruction and training (and the timing of that training) must also be commensurate with the risk to health and safety concerned. Training is essential if manual handling risks cannot be eliminated
