NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Manual Handling Risk Assessment

Prevention and control of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) is a major priority globally. Manual handling is one of the main causes of musculoskeletal disorders.

This qualification aims to help you address this, by providing the knowledge and tools required to identify manual handing risks and more importantly, prioritise controls to protect workers. This course is suitable for anyone involved in assessing the impact of manual handling activities in the workplace including:

– Health and safety professionals

– Workplace champions

– Employee representatives

– Occupational health practitioners


The course programmes includes:

  • Understanding why reducing the risks associated with manual handling activities is important
  • Explaining what manual handling risks are and how they may result in injury
  • Learning how to use HSE tools to:
  • assess manual handling risks in a simple and logical way
  • interpret, categorise, and communicate the level of risk identified for known risk factors associated with manual handling activities
  • Practice appropriate manual handling risk assessment technique
  • Apply wider elements of risk management for manual handling

How is this assessed?

A practical assessment is completed at the end of the course. After watching a video of a workplace scenario, you will be asked to complete a manual handling risk assessment using HSE tools and templates you will have learnt about through your studies.
