1/2 Day Manual Handling Practical Training


Course Overview:

This is a highly popular course for low risk industries and businesses such as office environments and jobs requiring minimal manual handling activities.

Principles of Manual Handling is a qualification, which compliments the certificate in Health and Safety in the Workplace. It is aimed at those who carry out manual handling activities at work and introduces students to the hazards of manual handling, the risks involved and controls available and what to expect from a manual handling assessment.

Almost one-third of reportable accidents result from handling, lifting and carrying activities. Virtually all workplaces have staff involved in some form of manual handling and the cost of injuries from poor or careless practice is enormous. Some injuries occur immediately, but many develop gradually. Most cause significant pain and result in absence from work.


Successful completion will prepare students to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of safer methods and tasks, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors.
