Manual Handling & Manual Handling Risk Assessment

Our course is designed for those involved in Manual Handling activities and risk assessments.

There is a legal requirement to both train employees involved in Manual Handling and to undertake specific Manual Handling Risk Assessments. Manual Handling is responsible for the largest amount of injury related days off work, so correct training is vital to avoid injury to staff or those around them.
