Training Method

Musculoskeletal injuries accounted for almost 1,500 out of every 100,000 reported work related injuries and instances of ill health in the last accounting period and although this figure is down from previous years, it could be significantly reduced if everyone who lifts, carries or pushes objects in the course of their daily work completed a manual handling course.

This course aims to give all attendees the tools with which they can assess a job and decide what if any safe manual handling methods can be used to complete the task. Risk assessment is essential to back and musculoskeletal safety at work and this course means that everyone can be sure they are not overtaxing their body.
