Manual handling is one of the leading causes of injury in the workplace and can lead to the development of long term Musculoskeletal Disorders. By providing your staff with manual handling training, you are not only meeting your obligations in relation to health and safety legislation but providing the skills for them to work more efficiently.
Part of the course is to understand the anatomy surrounding the action of manual handling, which gives the learners a greater insight into their own capabilities. Along with information about hazard identification and alternative lifting methods, they will be fully informed on how to safely manage manual handing within their everyday work environment. We offer a half day course at the SOA Safety training centre in Dalton and we can also provided onsite training if required. Our trainers are fully qualified and offer courses that are not just informative but also engaging.
