Manual Handling Courses and Training

Training Courses in Manual Handling

Manual handling is the process of exerting force to pull, lift, push, move or carry an item. Within the contexts of the workplace, training in manual handling provides employees and managers with an increased awareness of the appropriate methods of handling and carrying heavy loads without risking injury.

If you work in an environment that requires knowledge in properly manual handling or if you employ people who you expect to do manual handling in the workplace, you need a manual handling course.

Manual Handling Courses Maximise Safety and Minimise Injury

Manual handling is the act of exerting force to lift, push, carry, pull or move a heavy or cumbersome load. Because this is physically demanding, manual handling is a common cause of physical injury both in and outside the workplace.

Despite the fact that it can cause injury manual handing is unavoidable in many industries. Because of this, safety professionals, doctors of physical therapy and governing bodies have taken action to ensure that individuals and professionals understand how to participate in manual handling without physical injury. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) has set a number of regulations and protocols for organisations and employees dealing with manual handling in the workplace. The MHOR, or Manual Handling Operations Regulations 2004 is the leading resource on compliance in manual handling for organisations, managers and participating employees. By providing your employees with a manual handling course, you can ensure that you are meeting regulations in the workplace.

Manual Handling in Workplace Health & Safety

Manual handling courses are an indispensable component of health and safety at work. Material learned through them is relevant for both the employees carrying out the manual handling and the management staff which is responsible for ensuring employee training and compliance on the subject. Formal training through manual handling courses can provide information, tips and techniques to significantly reduce workplace injury.

In fact, for individuals who engage in activities requiring heavy lifting in the workplace, training in manual handing is a legal requirement. The responsibility to fulfill this requirement falls on the employer and is ultimately a benefit to both parties.

Manual Handling Courses

Whether you engage in manual handling on an everyday basis or only in rare occasions, courses in manual handling teach the proper techniques to prevent injuries. Manual handling courses can be applicable to anyone regardless of work atmosphere. From offices to factories, hospitals to warehouses, a manual handing injury can happen to anyone. After attending a course, employees will be aware of correct handling techniques, as well as government guidance on maximum weight recommendations.

Courses in manual handling cover areas such as:

  • Proper handling techniques
  • Safe lifting of objects and people
  • Lifting injuries and preventative measures
  • Regulations
  • Risk assessment

Open and On-Site Training Programmes

The art of proper manual handling relates to physical postures and techniques as well as the way in which employees interact with machinery and their working environments. Depending on the specific nature and needs of each employee or working environment, manual handling courses can be offered in both public and in-house formats.

While public manual handling courses may focus on general aspects of posture heavy lifting and machine safety, in-house training programmes can be tailored to the specific working environment of each organisation or team. This often makes them a more effective, efficient and cost-friendly option for companies.

Accredited training courses in Health and Safety

Accredited health and safety courses are governed by many important entities including NEBOSH, IOSH, CIEH, IFE, IMEA. These bodies are in place to ensure that courses meet educational requirements in code compliance and general safety issues. Accredited courses will provide a safer working environment for staff, which leads to successful and sustainable businesses. Accredited courses cover various areas including fire safety, work place safety, risk assessment, and first aid.
