Manual Handling Training Course
Manual handling injuries cause nearly a quarter of all reported workplace injuries, and back injuries are one of the leading causes of staff absence in the UK. Teaching safe handling techniques could not only prevent many of these injuries but ensures employers are fulfilling a legal duty to protect staff.
Manual handling is regularly undertaken by many workers including warehouse staff, those in the health care sector, sales reps, delivery and removal workers, undertakers, cleaners, office staff and IT professionals. Manual handling training courses are a cost effective way to keep safe handling techniques fresh in the minds of your staff.
To protect your business from the risk of injuries and potential litigation, manual handling training should be completed at least every 3 years. We provide both manual handling of objects (non-clinical) and manual handling of people (clinical manual handling) courses across East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent and Surrey.
