Manual Handling


Manual Handling is a comprehensive course for individuals who need guidance on safe handling techniques. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced to overcome manual handling problems. The Regulations provide an understanding of the duties of the employee and employer and why it is important to handle equipment correctly. Incorrect handling can cause injuries and it is important to develop good habits so that you learn to exercise safe manual handling.  Key modules will be fully explored to provide a firm understanding of risks related to manual handling, how to undergo risk assessment and ensure proper control measures are implemented. You will learn of the principles and practices of carrying out manual handling in a safe and healthy manner. You will learn effective lifting techniques that are vital to your health and safety, particularly if lifting is a part of your regular activity.

Manual Handling features practical steps and advice on how to assist the organisation by influencing the health, safety and welfare of your employees. This is an excellent training to bring greater awareness of the dangers posed by incorrect manual handling and putting safe handling techniques in place. This is a CPD certified and IIRSM approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate across a number of leading industries.
