Manual Handling of Objects – 3 Hours
Injuries caused by poor lifting techniques are one of the most common causes of prolonged time off work in the UK. So much so, that manual handling training is now likely to be compulsory training in any workplace expecting staff members to lift inanimate objects as part of their job role. Failure to properly adhere to this training is in the long run both costly to the individual and their company!
Our training is flexible and can be tailored to the specific activities and equipment used in your workplace. We are able to come to you to deliver your training on-site.
