All those activities which involve the efforts of moving, transporting, carrying, pushing, pulling, and moving objects by hand are termed manual handling. Improper handling is often considered among the main reasons for injury in the majority of workplaces. If there is poor manual handling, it can end up causing serious health issues including work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
