This half day course providing training in manual handling is designed to help easily prevent personal injury and to help attendees comply with current manual handling legislation.
Using multimedia presentations and practicals, our experienced trainers teach attendees about how the spine and back work and how to safely lift heavy objects, in order to show how damage can be easily avoided.
Training is provided either at our own specialised sites or provided for in house training.
