Manual Handling Training Course

Manual Handling Training Course

The Manual Handling course will give participants a basic understanding of the factors necessary to ensure their own safety and that of their work colleagues. This manual handling training course is based upon the principles of safe moving and handling of loads known as the 'kinetic' approach to manual handling.

At the conclusion of the course, delegates will have an understanding of safe manual handling principles and posses the skills to avoid the dangers of careless and unskilled manual handling.

Our Manual Handling course is aimed at anyone who undertakes manual handling operations, and as it is very interactive, it is advised that delegates are reasonably fit and able to take part in the majority of practical handling activities and wear suitable clothing.
