Manual Handling in the Workplace

This is the 4 hour general course and practical session to give an understanding of risk of injury to mustles, bones, ligaments, & tendons. Explanation of executive legislation and recommendations, as well as the consequences and costs of injuries within the workplace that are down to incorrect manual handing procedures.

Although this is a general course, we have trainers who can train staff in lifting equipment and other specialist aids, such as slider boards, turn tables, etc!

The course agenda covers the following areas:

  • The HSE
  • Basic risk assessment procedures.
  • Understanding of how back, muscle, joints and ligaments work and how to avoid injuries.
  • How to avoid and treat different injuries associated with manual handling.
  • Practical examples and class participation in manual handing techniques.
  • Opportunity to openly discuss and review any issues raised in the course around manual handing procedures.

On completion of the course, each attendee will receive a certificate and upto date manual handing literature and guides.
