This online Manual Handling Including Tyres training teaches you all you need to know about Moving and Handling safety and includes a specialised section with specific techniques for moving and lifting TYRES. Work towards compliance with current legislation with our CPD accredited course.


An estimated 909,000 working days are lost every year due to injuries sustained when using poor manual handling techniques. Poor manual handing also contributes to around 24% of injuries reported under RIDDOR.

Being competent in safe Manual Handling is a legal requirement for your workplace, and this course provides everything you need to know – specifically addressing the task of moving and lifting tyres.

This course introduces the importance of properly dealing with the task of moving, lifting and transporting potentially heavy objects.

It covers safe techniques for moving and lifting (including LITE), as well as looking at the anatomy of your back – helping you understand why it is so important to adopt best practice for lifting heavy or awkwardly shaped objects.

This course is an extended version of our best-selling Manual Handling Training programme, and is particularly suited to those working around tyres; whether it’s mechanics, tyre manufacturers or fleet managers.

Manual Handling including Tyres Training Course Contents

1. You and Your Back


In this section we look at how our backs work and how poor Manual Handling technique can cause and contribute to illness and injury.


2. Preparation


What is the LITE procedure?
LITE stands for Load, Individual, Task, Environment. These four things are all important whenever you prepare to lift or move a load. You must assess the potential problems before you start!

3. Manual Handling


This section contains step-by-step guides to safe lifting, including lifting from the floor, lifting from waist height, team lifts and pushing and pulling.

4. Moving and Lifting TYRES


This is the specialised section, specifically added to cover lifting and moving tyres. It includes small tyres, large tyres and tractor tyres, 2-man lifts and team lifts.

5. Conclusion


This is the final slide before the test. It summarises the training and emphasises that it doesn’t matter where you lift – it could be at work, it could be while you’re out somewhere, it could be while you’re at home – but wherever you are you need to put proper lifting techniques into practice, or you risk seriously damaging your back!
