Principles of Manual Handling
Only £30 per person
1/2 day course
Aimed at those who carry out manual handling activities at work.
As an employer, you must protect your workers from the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling in the workplace.
Manual handling means transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force. It includes lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving loads. A load can be an object, person or animal.
Manual handling regulations have been well-established for many years, yet many workplaces are still failing to effectively implement the correct manual handling techniques. It is estimated that 21% of all non-fatal workplace injuries are attributable to manual handling injuries.
Manual handling is one of the key health and safety concerns in the workplace as almost every organisation in any sector will have some form of manual handling activities being carried out.
