Manual handling training is important for keeping your employees safe from injuries when lifting, lowering, carrying, pushing and pulling objects at work
Injuries associated with manual handling activities make up around a third of workplace injuries, of which most of these injuries are associated with sprains and strains to the back. If your staff are routinely involved in carrying out manual handling operations for a significant part of their role and your risk assessment has identified it as a risk, then our manual handling course online will provide your employees with key information and instructions on what to do to stay safe.
