Our half-day Manual Handling course will show your staff how to carry out manual handling tasks correctly and therefore avoid back injuries. To comply with current Safety Health & Welfare at work acts 2005 & Safety Health & Welfare at work (General Applications) 2007, staff engaged in manual handling must be given training in safe handling techniques. By training your staff on how to conduct manual handling safely, you are complying with your legal requirements. Back injuries caused by incorrect manual handling techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers compensation claims.
This is not an instructor’s course. The healthcare provider should follow patient handling and moving, see Patient handling for info and booking.
