Manual Handling Instructor and Assessor
Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work. It causes work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) which account for over a third of all workplace injuries.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended) require that where an employer cannot eliminate manual handling that they make a suitable and sufficient assessment and take appropriate steps to reduce the risk of injury.
This three day course is suitable for safety/HR managers, managers, safety representatives, anyone who may teach or risk assess manual handling, or have management responsibility for those who do. Before attendance delegates should have attended a manual handling course or have experience of correct manual handling techniques.
