Manual Handling Course

Course Background:

If deemed necessary by a company-specific risk assessment, manual handling training may be required to mitigate risk. By training participants to conduct manual handling safely you are complying with your legal requirements. Back injuries caused by incorrect manual handling techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers’ compensation claims.

  • Dangers of unsafe lifting
  • Overview of safety legislation
  • Anatomy of the spine and muscular system
  • Safe lifting points
  • Injuries associated with manual handling
  • Importance of exercise and nutrition
  • Competency testing

Learning Outcomes:

This course will help you to understand the reasons for doing a job in a way that allows for the least amount of risk. Participants will learn to recognize the risks involved and decide the best way to complete various tasks. This will enable participants to obtain the knowledge to complete unavoidable manual handling activities correctly.

This Course is Designed For:

All staff that engage in manual handling activities during their working day. These employees are exposed to situations where the risks cannot be eliminated or reduced sufficiently.

Training Methodology:

This course combines lecture methods with “hands-on” practical work using different types of materials. It is highly interactive with role-playing and practical exercises to reinforce understanding and learning.
