Manual Handling Course (Principles and Practise) - 1 day

 

We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting.  Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties.  Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.

 

The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practise.

 

The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training - supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention.

 

This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling - not only meeting HSE recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices in any situations.

 

A range of subjects are covered that will equip delegates to:

  • Understand the reasons for safe manual handling
  • Understand how manual handling risk assessments contribute to improving health and safety
  • Understand the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements associated with manual handling safety
  • Be able to apply safe manual handling principles

A level 2 national qualification, (level 5 in Scotland), will be issued to the learner.  This qualification does not expire, but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies and procedures is vital to keep the qualification current.
