WISHING ALL OUR VISITORS A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over now million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.
The Risk arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive(HSE) for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practices.
The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training - supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention.
This is a 6-hour classroom based course. Dependant on the learner's experience, there may well be some pre-course or post-course reading.
A range of subjects are covered that will equip delegates to:
- Understand the reasons for safe manual handling
- Understand how manual handling risk assessments contribute to improving
health and safety
- Understand the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements
associated with manual handling safety
- Be able to apply safe manual handling principles
Practical assessment is on-going by the inspector, culminating with a written test.
This Qualification does not expire, but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies and procedures is vital to keep the qualification current.
A maximum of 16 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.
