What is the course about?
In most jobs, in almost all sectors, there are elements of manual handling. And with the moving of objects there is often questionable advice from well-meaning friends and colleagues. Injuries as a result of manual handling equate to over one-third of all workplace injuries. This course provides the knowledge and skills to avoid you becoming a part of that statistic.
This course is accredited by Highfield Qualifications.
Who is it for?
Ideal for employee inductions, refresher training or anyone who will be involved in manual handling as part of their job role. The course can also be used as part of the on-programme element of the new apprenticeship standards, supporting the knowledge, skills and behaviours apprentices need to effectively integrate into the workplace.
