Delegates will learn how to improve their manual handling technique and how to conduct personal risk assessments with knowledge of potential hazards, helping them to reduce personal risk while handling.

The course is delivered in a classroom environment and is split into five sections: Introduction and Legislation; Risk Assessments; Identifying the Risks; Reducing and Controlling the Risks; and Techniques.

These sections encourage delegates to act cautiously and efficiently, ensuring they always analyse a load, lift it correctly and are aware of the impact lifting injuries have on a business and the surrounding regulations and legislation.

To pass the course, participates are tested by a short written assessment at the end of the training.

The HSE guidelines are in place to ensure businesses conduct safe practices and do not pose harm to anyone, including instances of manual handling. UK companies are legally bound to meet Duty of Care requirements and put steps in place to ensure staff and visitors are safe around handling activities.

Effective training courses help employees to understand the guidelines they must comply with. This certified training will act as a safety net for your company, both ethically and legally.

Getting the proper certification will benefit your business in various ways, so get your course sorted today!
