Manual Handling Training covers any task which requires a person to lift, lower, push, pull, hold or carry any object, animal or person. This assessment complies with the HSE requirements (Manual Handling Operations Regulations, 1992) and covers essential topics such as;
- Risk factors and how injuries can occur.
- How to carry out safe manual handling, including good handling technique.
- Appropriate systems of work for the individual’s task and environment.
- Use of mechanical aids and practical work to allow the trainer to identify and put right anything the trainee is not doing safely.
Our flexible training sessions allows both theoretical and practical issues to be addressed, as required by the employer. The training programme enables early identification of work-related ill health and ensures that employees take responsibility for their own health issues and report issues to their employer as required.
Who needs this training: Any member of staff who needs Manual Handling Training or updating on such matters.
How it works: The training requirements are discussed with the employer. Once the training needs are identified, training can be carried out with groups of staff “in-house” or at an external location. Training records are maintained by us including the content of the session and the hand-outs we have provided. This information can also be provided to the employer for their own records if so desired. All attendees are presented with certificates of attendance as proof of training.
