Summary A practical understanding of the law is essential for all those involved in the manual handling of adults and children (as patients, clients or pupils), whether in 'hands-on', managing, commissioning or advisory roles.

Applicable primarily to England, Scotland and Wales, it covers both employee safety under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations and wider health and safety at work legislation, and also patient and cli.
