Manual handling accounts for the largest cause of work related accidents (39%) in the U.K. with each injury averaging 20 days off work.
Who Should Attend?
The aim of the Manual Handling training course is to give an understanding of the risks associated with Manual Handling, the long-term effects on the body whilst manually moving objects and how to avoid suffering a musculoskeletal injury.
We use an audio and visual presentation, with group activities and it concludes with a written test.
Our half day Manual Handling training courses are held at our Training Centre in Retford, Nottinghamshire and can be used toward your CPD.
The Manual Handling training course will look at the employers and employee's responsibilities under The Manual Handling Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) and covers the following:
Appropriate systems of work for the individual's tasks and environment
How to carry out safe manual handling including good handling technique
Manual handling risk factors and how injuries can occur
