Manual Handling Training Course

Our Manual Handling Training Course delivers 3 – 4 hours of classroom based instruction to enable candidates to gain an understanding of the process of lifting and moving loads, be able to identify hazards and determine the safest method of handling and moving the load without injury, using accepted lifting methods and regulations. This comprehensive course is suitable for anyone in an organisation who is required to handle, lift, push or move any load from construction workers to office workers,

Under health and safety legislation, there is a duty to identify where the moving of loads could lead to a significant risk of injury and then to take action to control and reduce the risk. Although avoidance is the preferred option, for most businesses, manual handling by people will always be required for some tasks.
