Manual Handling Awareness

We offer a half day Manual Handling Awareness course for individuals or groups

Incorrect Manual Handling Awareness accounts for over a third of all workplace injuries; employers have a responsibility to ensure drivers, passenger assistants and volunteers understand the importance of and are able to carry out, a simple risk assessment within their line of work.

Correct Manual Handling is essential and this course provides an understanding of the Health and Safety Executive legislation/recommendations, the implications and costs of manual handling injuries and the importance of looking after yourself while working.

Attending this course will lead to delegates performing the correct lifting, pulling and pushing procedures.

The topics covered during the day are:

  • 24 hour Back Care
  • Legal Requirements
  • Risk Assessments
  • How Your Back Works
  • Handling Techniques
  • Safe Use of Equipment

You will be given practical and theory assessments as part of the course and a certificate will be issued to successful candidates.

Our Training Centre, based in West London, is fully equipped for all your training needs. We can also travel to your premises for your convenience; in such cases, we will bring the necessary equipment required for training. Prices for this may vary depending on distance, travel and number of delegates.
