||This report presents the outcome of a study carried out to establish scientifically-based principles for manual handling training, both for conventional (two-handed, symmetrical) lifting and for "non-standard" lifting, where the conventional technique is inapplicable. A core feature of the study was a "Delphi" exercise, consulting with 37 international experts in a variety of disciplines related to manual handling training. A series of eleven principles were identified on the basis of their comments relating to conventional lifting. A review of published literature relevant to the different lifting scenarios also was carried out to provide the basis for scientifically-supported principles in non-standard situations. These may provide practical guidance for situations where conventional two-handed symmetrical lifting is not possible.
