Manual Handling Training

Manual Handling Training

When we lift and move objects, heavy or not, our body is working. If we don't lift correctly, extra strain can be put on areas of the body that can't cope with the load. It is very important to understand how to handle heavy objects, and even more important to put these methods and techniques into practice each and every day. We need to make habits for ourselves, and our team so that we're doing our best to prevent injury and work safely.

This manual handling course is structured on four simple manual handling techniques. We want to take the first step towards creating good habits and to have these learnings used in every lift our trainees make.

Changing Habits

Learning correct manual handling techniques is one thing... However, the real rewards come when we can actually change behaviour for the better. The manual handling essentials course is just the beginning of making these good behaviours a habit.

Our manual handling training also offers a leadership training course; to give health and safety reps and team leaders the tools to lead change and develop habits with their work team. This course can be supplemented with a subscription to a toolbox to provide engaging material and quarterly onsite trainer visits. This aims to continue engagement with the team leaders and their staff to make sure good manual handling techniques aren't brushed under the mat and forgotten.

Manual Handling Essentials Course – Classroom

Includes training in safety, theory, and practical activities for safe lifting behaviours. You don't need any licences or training prior to coming on a manual handling training course.
