TQUK Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling (RQF)

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 did not set any weight limits for lifting or carrying loads, this was amended in 2002 and now require employees to have adequate training or knowledge in order to make assessments to judge whether safe moving is possible.

The regulations apply to almost all work environments from offices to care homes and factories. There are different risks associated with different sectors and this accredited qualification offers learning outcomes which are suitable for all. 

The qualification includes:

  • The reasons for safe moving and handling

  • The importance of risk assessment

  • The principles of safe manual handling

  • The safe application of manual handling skills

The qualification provides an effective means of ensuring that employees are aware of their responsibilities and understand the principles of the safe moving and lifting of loads.
