More than 25% of all accidents reported to the HSE each year are associated with manual handling resulting in hours of downtime for many companies!
This course will help employers comply with The Manual Handling Operations 1992 which state that employers are responsible for ensuring that staff who lift or move loads are trained.
The course will help delegates develop an understanding of why correct manual handling is so important, how to identify risks and will offer guidance on how to determine the safest method of handling to avoid injury.
