Manual Handling Courses

Manual Handling Training Online and On-site

The manual handling course is a step in the right direction to following the manual handling operations regulations 1992. Manual handling is defined as any transporting or supporting of a load (including lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving) by hand of bodily force.

The course will not just teach the technique of lifting but is aimed at changing the mindset of individuals in-regards to manual handling. We believe that a better understanding of the risks involved will lead to fewer injuries in the workplace.

OPTIONAL: It is possible to combine this course with a half day course such as the working at heights course to create a fully bespoke training day.
