The objective of manual handling training is to inform employees of the health hazards of lifting and carrying weights and what they can do to reduce the potential for strains and sprains.
This course is ‘hands-on’ and where possible customise the session so its relevant to your workplace. Training consists of a short presentation and theory component followed by a practical session of lifting techniques. Where possible, the use of equipment/machinery onsite can be used to demonstrate correct lifting and moving techniques.
Training time is approximately 1-1.5 hours, with a maximum of 10-15 trainees. Requires space or approximately 1.5m per person.
