Yes. The legislation covering this is the Health & Safety at Work Act, 1974, and Regulation 9 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). This regulation requires that every employer ensures that all persons who use lift trucks, as well as those that supervise them, have received adequate training.

Yes. Provision and Use of Working Equipment Regulations 1998 states that "all persons who supervise or manage the use of work equipment have received adequate training for the purpose of Health & Safety at work".
Anyone involved in the moving and handling of goods and people could be at risk. Injuries and suffering can be linked to any work involving handling of loads, even light loads if handled incorrectly. Risks can be found in all work sectors but healthcare, agriculture and construction are recognised as high risk industries due to the number and nature of the manual handling activities.
