Employers have a legal obligation to properly assess and control manual handling risks, and injuries caused through poor manual handling are a common reason for sickness absence.
We offer two courses, one for operators who may be at risk from manual handling injuries, the other is for managers / supervisors who need to understand potential risks and comply with legal requirements.
Three hour course for operators
This revised and improved course, delivered by a RoSPA qualified trainer, teaches all aspects of safe manual handling, including lifting techniques and LITE (Load, Individual, Task, Environment) as well as providing a good understanding as to why safe manual handling is so important to an employee's health now and well into the future.
Our training is flexible and designed for those who undertake manual handling activities in their working role.
It can be customised so that delegates can experience handling objects which they would normally encounter in their workplace.
Four hour course for managers / supervisors
This slightly longer course involving our ROSPA accredited trainer demonstrating how to complete risk assessments and offering advice on hazards present in the workplace.
Dates: as required
Venue: delivered onsite at a client's premises
