Manual handling is one of the most common causes of musculo-skeletal disorders, specifically back pains, affecting employees of all ages. With these statistics in mind the importance of effective Manual Handling Training cannot be over-emphasised. In some cases by training carefully selected individuals to become Manual Handling Instructors it can be more cost effective to the organisation.
