Manual Handling eLearning for a Safer Business
This course is available as part of the Health and Safety eLearning Suite in one great package.
Over a third of workplace injuries occur due to manual handling, be they spine problems or repetitive strain injuries. Explore the proper techniques for lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, holding and carrying objects and their benefits in this module.
This course sets out the key facts about manual handling in a straightforward and clear manner.
What to Expect
Using this course, employees will learn:
- The importance of safe manual handling
- How to carry out manual handling tasks with the correct posture
- How to use equipment to reduce or avoid manual handling risks
- How to assess risk factors of manual handling tasks
It may come as a surprise to find out that manual handling accidents are responsible for around a third of all workplace injuries! That's why The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require that members of staff are properly trained before undertaking manual handling tasks.
As most work environments employ staff who incorporate some use of manual handling in their work, our manual handling eLearning training is designed to give a superb overview for all industries and sectors, providing an ideal way to show your staff how to lift safely in a smart, efficient and professional process. Once your staff have completed our manual handling eLearning course, they will understand how to look after their body correctly and to move loads with safety and confidence.
