Principles of Manual Handling & Transit

Four Key Pointers For Safe Manual Handling

1.  Maintain a natural posture whenever possible during manual  

 

 

handling, keeping your 'spine in line'.

2.  Always create a good, stable base, by widening your stance with  

 

 

comfortable limits; placing one foot in front of the other, about shoulder  

 

width apart, with your knees slightly bent.

3.  Keep any load, or point of force, as close to your vertical centre of gravity  

 

as possible.

4.  Use the large leg and buttock muscles to provide the power during  

 

 

manual handling techniques/manoeuvre.

Stop And Think

• Wear appropriate clothing and footwear

• Always select the appropriate manoeuvre and handling equipment for the task.

• Prepare the environment.

• Avoid static stooping. Try to work as close to your natural, erect spinal 

posture as possible. Your back is strongest when upright so that it forms 

three gentle curves.

• Know your own handling capacity and do not exceed it.

• Always ask for help if you feel you need it.
