Course Description


Lifting and handling is something we do every day, most of the time we don’t actually think about the risks and the damage that we could bring to ourselves. Damage, injury and pain due to poor manual handling techniques is only a lift away – even in the safety of your own home you are at risk. It is estimated that millions of people suffer from musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) caused or made worse by their current or past work. Often the MSDs are as a result of manual handling incidents. Millions of working days were lost in one year as a result of such incidents, with each sufferer taking an average of 20 days off. Nearly all jobs involve some form of manual handling and the use of poor techniques to move material is the most common cause of injury at work. This manual handling training course will provide you with an insight into the importance of taking care of your body and in particular your back and neck when lifting, pushing or pulling objects. You will learn regulations surrounding manual handling as well as clear techniques and guidance for correct manual handling techniques. Anyone involved in lifting, pulling or pushing of any kind in the workplace would benefit from the training. The training course will help you develop manual handling skills and an awareness of manual handling.
