HABC LEVEL 2 AWARD IN SAFE MOVING AND HANDLING (QCF)
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations do not set any weight limits for lifting and carrying loads and amendments in 2002 now require employees to have adequate or appropriate knowledge or training in order to make assessments to judge whether safe moving is possible.
