Course Details

Who Attends?
This Manual Handling course is aimed at all levels of employees who may undertake manual handling operations, including the transportation of a load of items by lifting, putting down, pulling, carrying or moving thereof by hand or by bodily force.
Training will include a classroom lecture, PowerPoint presentations, practical exercises and case studies. Fully comprehensive training notes will be provided to delegates who attend the course.
The Aim?

Manual handling relates to the moving of items either by lifting, lowering, carrying, pushing or pulling. The weight of the item is an important factor, but many other factors can create a risk of injury, for example the number of times you have to pick up or carry an item, the distance you are carrying it, where you are picking it up from or putting it down (picking it up from the floor, putting it on a shelf above shoulder level) and any twisting, bending stretching or other awkward posture you may adopt while doing a task.
Manual handling injuries are part of a wider group of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The term ‘musculoskeletal disorders’ covers any injury, damage or disorder of the joints or other tissues in the upper/lower limbs or the back. Statistics from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) indicate that MSD cases, including those caused by manual handling, account for more than a third of all work-related illnesses reported each year.
