Manual Handling Courses
Manual handling might not seem high risk, but it is actually one of the most common causes of workplace injuries. The importance of safe manual handling techniques can therefore mean the difference between a productive day at work or being off work with a bad back!
Manual handling is an everyday task in most workplaces, whether you are filing paper work in the office, stacking shelves in a shop, or bricklaying on site. Goods and materials, tools and equipment, all have to be moved, lifted and carried throughout the day. If any of these tasks are not carried out appropriately there is a risk of injury.
Our Manual handling courses provide the vital knowledge that will help reduce the risks of injury in the workplace. Effective training in manual handling can lead to less absenteeism, which can have an economic benefit and most importantly reduce individual suffering.
