Course Overview

We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for
over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.
The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice.
The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training – supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention. This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation.

Course Duration & Qualification

This is a 6-hour classroom based course. Dependant on the learner’s experience, there may well be some pre-course or post-course reading. The practical assessment is on-going by the instructor, culminating with a written test.
