Yes, still very relevant. As a GPO apprentice in the mid 60s I did a one day "Manual Handling and Lifting" course - it's served me well.

Re: British Railways Health & Safety in the 1960`s

there was one part where the tantalisingly skimpily dressed lass picks up a barrel (prolly empty), hoists it above head height and then turns sideways to dump it on the floor.  that's a recipe for a pulled muscle and weeks of pain, like i experienced shifting a heavy lump in a similar manner.
i junked it after it was about half-done from boredom.
