Safe Manual Handling

Manual handling is an everyday task in most workplaces, but it is also one of the most common causes of workplace injuries.

It is in the best interests of both the employer and the employee to ensure that manual handling is carried out in the safest possible way. Often, the cause of the injury is not what is being moved, but how it is moved. Adopting a few simple rules can make all the difference between achieving objectives and time off work for a bad back.

This eLearning module takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and all training carried out is recorded. You will be provided with a detailed report, which demonstrates that you have a formal review process in place for your drivers.

The course includes:

  • Safe manual handling and the law
  • The costs of poor manual handling
  • Hazards and risk assessment
  • Correct lifting technique
  • Manual handling equipment
