Manual Handling Training Course
Our Manual Handling Training Online is a course in understanding. The training will provide staff with instruction on the correct procedures for lifting, pulling, pushing. Once completed and passed the learner can print off their certificate immediately.
Each year around 33% of injuries that are reported to the HSE are related to Manual Handling. The incorrect lifting, pushing, pulling techniques can lead to the most serious injuries. It is now a legal responsibility that all staff reduce as far as possible the need to move loads without machinery, thus reducing the risks associated with manual handling. Additionally, good techniques will also reduce related risks.
