Manual Handling Public Course
Course Duration: Half Day (Afternoon)
Course Dates: Please see our course calendar
Under the 1992 Manual Handling regulations, it is every employer’s responsibility to provide safe and sufficient training for any employee whose job involves manual lifting. Equally, it is sound business practice to provide such training in order to avoid unnecessary claims or industrial injury on past and/or present employees.
*If you have multiple delegates then Q1Tum’s in-house training option could save you money. For more information please get in touch for a full quote.
Training is provided via a "competent" trainer who has benefited from an intensive Manual Handling Instructor qualification.
Upon Completion, each delegate would receive a certificate of competence to confirm that your organisation has trained its employees to the legally required level.
Each 3 hour session would comprise of the following:
- Legal Aspects of Manual Handling.
- Physical make up of the body and the impact of Manual Handling.
- Lifting Model and Correct Methods.
- Manual Handling Assessments and Exercises.
- Examples of Good/Bad Practice - Video.
The course is extremely "hands on" and delegates are encouraged to participate in lifting exercises and techniques.
