Reduce the potential for workplace injury by learning how to carry out manual handling activities at work safely.
Manual handling is the movement or support of a load using physical effort, including lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying and moving.
This type of activity is performed in every workplace at varying intensities and can be a leading cause of workplace injury if not managed diligently. It is therefore critical 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.
There are a number of considerations that must be made to reduce the risks, whether evaluating employee capabilities, the nature of loads, environmental conditions or ensuring that you and your team have received adequate manual handling training.
When you purchase any CIEH training course, you will receive a set of in-depth training materials, including slides, activity sheets, textbooks and test sheets. Take a look at our sample course books for Foundation Manual Handling.
The CIEH Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Manual Handling course will allow candidates to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of safer working practices in cooperation with their supervisors and managers.
