More than a quarter of all reported accidents a year result from poor manual handling techniques, causing absences, injuries and disabilities. Giving employees the appropriate training in correct manual handling techniques and the use of mechanical lifting aids is highly cost effective. Our manual handling course covers:

  • Regulation relating to manual handling
  • Statistics and injuries related to manual handling
  • Case studies, types of injuries and how they occur
  • Risk assessments
  • Recommended lifting techniques
  • Appropriate systems of work
  • Mechanical aids

We aim to tailor this course to the specific tasks each client would be likely to face in their work environment. The course is theory based, with interactive manual handling activities and a brief exam to reaffirm the information covered.
