Stock image for course

About the Course

The number of claims by employees for injuries caused by manual handling continues to rise. One of the duties of care imposed by the Manual Handling Regulations 1992 is for employers to provide suitable and sufficient training for employees who are required to undertake manual handling activities at work.

A three hour course introducing manual handling in the workplace, the course will raise employee awareness of correct lifting techniques.

In many cases this course can be adapted for a specific group or business and delivered at the customers chosen location.
