Course Aim:

This course is designed to provide an awareness of the injuries and damage caused by poor manual handling, and the correct techniques required to reduce the likelihood of future problems.

By the end of the course delegates will be able to summarise the relevant legislation and regulations, appreciate the impact of poor manual handling on business performance, identify and assess potential hazards and choose appropriate methods of risk control, in addition to carrying out manual handling techniques in a safe manner.
