3 Hour Manual Handling Awareness Course


This course introduces delegates to the hazards and risks involved in manual handling. It will equip delegates with the ability to develop safer manual handling techniques in the workplace, which will contribute to the reduction of accidents and injuries in the work place, which in turn benefits both employers and employees. This course can be tailored to meet the needs of your particular workplace. The course is aimed at all employees and we recommend that employers should consider safer manual handling as part of induction training for all new employees.
