Manual Handling

Training & Instruction

Brief introduction of training course.

Manual handling has been part of every day life since the birth of mankind, and the associated injuries are still commonplace.

Despite the application of correct lifting methods being regularly taught in the workplace, it is rarely practised by those undertaking manual handling activities.

This course intends not only to provide the statutory instruction on manual handling, but also to change people’s attitude towards looking after their own well-being.

This half day course can be delivered in your own company training facility or at a local hospitality venue in many towns and cities in Yorkshire.
