Manual handling remains one of the main causes of occupational injuries within the UK and is associated with more over-three-day injuries reported to the HSE (41%) than any other occupational task.
Back pain is the most common cause of abesenteeism in the UK!
This course is intended to reduce the risk of harm by increasing the delegates awareness of good manual handling practices. Attendees of this course will benefit from:
- A better awareness of the basic principles of safe manual handling.
- A reduced risk of being injured by the use of bad manual handling techniques.
- A lower risk of absenteeism caused by a manual handling injury.
- Knowledge of risk reduction techniques such as team lifting.
All delegates receive a certificate of attendance after successfully demonstrating safe lifting techniques. Trousers and practical footwear are advised for the practical demonstration.
