Manual Handling training
Develop your knowledge of how to carry out manual handling activities at work.
Manual Handling is the movement or support of a load using physical effort – including lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying and moving.
Manual handling operations are performed in every workplace. It's important that everyone who is exposed to manual handling hazards is aware of the risks and, when manual handling tasks cannot be avoided, what measures must be taken to assess and control such risks.
All courses include a suite of in-depth training materials, including slides, activity sheets, textbooks and test sheets.

This course will develop your knowledge of how to carry out manual handling activities at work by introducing them to the hazards of manual handling, the risks involved and the control measures available to help prevent injury.
