Manual Handling Training Course – Half Day

Book This Course

Back problems are one of the most common ailments in the UK and the cost of absences from back pain costs the country millions of pounds every year. All too often, back problems stem from a simple lifting incident and once the damage is done it can lead to a recurring affliction for many years to come.

Manual handling training helps to avoid these injuries occurring in the first place by teaching people how to make assessments on whether an object is suitable for lifting and the techniques to use if it is deemed to be safe.

Who Needs Manual Handling Training?

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require all employers who lift or carry loads of any size to carry out manual handling training. This training is also useful for other staff, who wouldn’t normally lift in their everyday roles, as anyone could potentially attempt to move a heavy box or carry equipment somewhere.

Even those who have already undertaken manual handling training in the past should conduct refreshers periodically as it is easy to forget to follow best practice over time.

What Does Manual Handling Training Cover?

This half day training course from Boss Training allows employers to comply with manual handling regulations. It is usually carried out at your own premises, which makes it easy to train a number of people at one time. Delegates gain an understanding of the regulations and learn techniques to assess hazards and determine the safest method of lifting without incurring injury. The course will enable employers to comply with health and safety regulations, whilst also minimising the risk of injury within the workplace.
