Some sample text from this document reads:

'Lifting, moving, and lowering loads'

• Raising, lowering and carrying loads is to be carried out using the correct posture and technique

• Ensure the load is light enough to lift and stable in transport. Loads over 25KG are classified as double-handling

• If the load is to be carried, check the route is free from obstacles before starting

• Use mechanical aids such as stack trucks where possible if applicable

• A load is classified as double handling if it is of irregular shape, obstructs vision, has to be manhandled around staircases or other obstructions or if a person doesn’t feel confident lifting it

• Manual handling training is to be taken every three years.
