Manual Handling Training

Manual Handling Training

Manual handling training is a legal requirement in any situation where your staff are required to do any lifting, lowering, pulling or pushing. Most work environments incorporate the use of manual handling in some way so it is a necessity for so many.

With over a third of work-related injuries resulting from manual handling being done poorly, it is essential that staff are properly trained to be able to perform manual handling safely. While keeping your staff safe and reducing the risk of harm is essential, back injuries are the biggest cause of staff absence in the UK so there is a financial benefit too.

If you’re looking to hold a group manual handling training course at your place of work, we can help. We can deliver this expert training course on-site or at your choice of venue across the South East, South West and the Midlands.

Manual Handling Training

There are many manual handling courses available online but there are significant advantages to in-person training. Manual handling is a practical activity so it’s much easier to demonstrate safe and proper techniques in a practical session.

Our manual handling training course has been designed to meet the needs of all staff, managers, and contractors. A range of important topics are covered, followed by an assessment with a certificate issued upon completion. However, we can tailor our training to suit your needs.

Once your team has attended this course, they’ll know how to look after their back properly and to move loads safely. Your business will be protected from the cost of employee absenteeism, the risk of litigation, and the number of back injuries will be greatly reduced.
