Manual handling is the process of moving something by hand or with your body. It’s a legal requirement for anyone in the workplace who’s involved in manual handling to be trained in the correct methods to minimise the risk of injury.
This online course provides detailed information on the right manual handling techniques to help you operate safely, both in your work environment and in everyday life.
The course covers the following areas:
- Musculoskeletal disorders and the main types of manual handling injuries
- Understanding the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992
- How to follow a risk assessment before moving a load, including LITE or TILE
- Developing correct lifting techniques in different situations, as an individual and in a team
You’ll complete a short assessment at the end of the course and on completion, you’ll be awarded a CPD accredited certificate in Manual Handling Techniques.
