Manual Handling

Cost: £420 + VAT for a 3 hr session for up to 8 delegates or £770 + VAT for two separate 3 hr sessions for up to 8 delegates (16 in total) held on 1 day

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.

Course overview

  • Base positions and movements
  • Good handling techniques 
  • Basic physiology (spine, anatomy, structure and function) 

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.

  • Legal requirements
  • Ergonomics
  • Implementing safe handling policies

Dates: as required

Venue: delivered onsite at a client's premises
