Online Manual Handling

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 objects, particularly those that are large or difficult to grasp, and even more important to put these methods and techniques into practice every day. 

This manual handling course includes four simple manual handling techniques to safely and efficiently perform manual handling tasks, reducing the risk of injury. Learning these techniques is the first step towards creating good habits. 

You will also learn about:

  • Identifying manual handling hazards and risks
  • The impact of back injuries, as well as symptoms and what to do about them
  • Additional best practices to reduce the risk of injury and create a safer workplace

    Please note: The course does not cover specific techniques required for example, by the health sector (lifting and handling patients), the construction sector (handling tools, etc). 

As the course is all completed online, you can do it at your own pace, anytime, anywhere.
