This course will give participants a basic understanding of the factors necessary to ensure their own safety and that of the colleagues and staff they supervise.

As this manual handling course is very interactive it is advised that delegates are reasonably fit and able to take part in the majority of practical handling activities and wear appropriate clothing.

The course is based upon the principles of safe moving and handling of loads known as the kinetic approach to Manual Handling, and includes the following:

  • How to think and assess
  • Safety procedures
  • Avoiding unnecessary lifting
  • Risk Assessment
  • Practical exercises

At the conclusion of the course delegates will have an understanding of safe handling principles and possess the necessary skills to avoid the dangers of careless and unskilled manual handling.

Certificates will be issued to participants who attend the entire course and satisfactorily demonstrate that they are able to follow the principles taught on the course.
