Why Study Manual Handling at Work?

Effective manual handling training provides workers with the knowledge and skills they need to approach manual handling tasks in a safe way. The greater the awareness of the importance of safe moving and handling, the lower the risk of employees being injured at work.  It is the legal responsibility of every employer to protect the workforce from all potential risks and accidents in the workplace.  This includes empowering employees with the skills and knowledge needed to protect themselves. Manual handling concerns the movement or transportation of any load, including lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling or moving objects of any kind.  This introductory training programme is designed to provide a broad overview of the basics of safe manual handling. Ideal for workers at all levels and essential for managers looking to set a positive example.
