Welcome to your Manual Handling E-Learning Training Course.
Your course has been divided into two parts.
Online Manual Handling theory learning and face-to-face practical training. The time gap between theory learning practicals must be not more than 4 weeks. To be accepted on the face to face assessment a Theory Learning certificate of successful completion must be produced.
Manual Handling Theory Leaning Consists of the following:
Lesson 1. Introduction to the Safety Health and Welfare legislation The principal legislation covering the health and safety of people in the workplace in the Republic of Ireland is the Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (as amended).
Lesson 2. The Musculoskeletal System. Our ability to move rests upon our use of the muscles and bones which constitute our musculoskeletal system.
Lesson 3. Intervertebral Disc. Outlines where discs are located in the body what is their function and how they can be injured.
Lesson 4. Anatomy Structure & functions of the spine. This section outlines the various parts of the spine and how the inner act with each other. Learning and maintaining good posture is a sure method to prevent back pain.
Lesson 5. Posture and back pain
Lesson 6. Fitness and Flexibility
Lesson 7. Ergonomics
Lesson 8. Manual Handling —- T.I.L.E Assessment.

Health And Safety Legislation
Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 and Part 2, Chapter 4, Regulations 68, 69 and Schedule 3 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act (General Application) Regulations 2007 [S.I. 299 of 2007] apply to manual handling in the workplace.
The Musculoskeletal System
Our ability to move rests upon our use of the muscles and bones which constitute our musculoskeletal system. This system gives us our form and shape and provides our bodies with support and stability. It is responsible for bodily movements. Constituents Of The Musculoskeletal System
Discs are located between the vertebrae. Each disc has two functions: it forms a fibrocartilaginous joint which permits slight movement of the vertebrae and it works like a ligament by holding the vertebrae together. The discs are composed of an outer part called the annulus, which surrounds the inner part, called the nucleus. The nucleus contains a gel substance with the consistency of a jelly (see figure 7). It is the nucleus of the disc that acts as the body's shock absorber between the vertebral bodies (see figure 8 and figure 9). This jelly or nucleus may be forced out of the disc completely (herniated disc), causing pain as it exerts pressure on the nerve lying near the disc (see disc disorders).
Anatomy Structure & functions of the spine
This section outlines the various parts of the spine and how the inner act with each other. Learning and maintaining good posture is a sure method to prevent back pain.
Posture and Back Pain
Learning and maintaining good posture is a sure method to prevent back pain.
Fitness and Flexability
There are 4 elements to fitness
Ergomonics in the workplace is all about the "fit" between people and their work
Manual Handling ---- T.I.L.E
In many cases manual handling at work cannot be avoided: therefore certain procedures and steps should be considered and if necessary implemented in order to avoid manual handling injury.
Remember the defininition of manual handling as SHWW Regulations 2007
