Why Techniques Matter?

Manual handling techniques matter when assisting or carrying out any manual handling task, from lifting a box to supporting a person to move on a bed or stand from a chair. 

Supporting people to move can place us in awkward postures, which can increase our risk of injury.

Practising safe and efficient manual handling techniques firstly starts by adopting a safer way to move that in turn protects our backs.
