More than one third of all injuries reported each year to the HSE involve Manual Handling. Prevention is certainly better than cure when it comes to back and limb injuries, which is why more and more companies are now making sure their staff are properly trained in correct manual handling techniques.
Our manual handling course covers all of the necessary aspects of task and load assessment, theory and practical training with different types of load and the physical approach to lifting.
Our manual handling training courses comply fully with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (amended 2002) and the European Directive 90/269/EEC.
