Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury at work.
To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced.
The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly, including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.
This Manual Handling course outlines exactly what constitutes manual handling and covers the regulations and legislation that apply to manual handling tasks.
It then goes on to cover safe handling techniques and how to develop good habits in relation to manual handling.
It finishes off by introducing some practical solutions and the use of mechanical aids.
Please note that this is an awareness course only. If your duties include manual handling, you will also need further practical training, you can get in touch with us to arrange this.
