Basic Manual Handling
This course allows employers to train their staff on how to lift and carry safely in relation to the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.
Whenever an employee is required to move a heavy item manually there is a risk of personal injury. This makes it vital that responsible employers provide their staff with the right training.
The course covers all areas of manual handling, including techniques, the injuries that could occur as a result of incorrect handling and the use of mechanical aids.
Employers are required to protect their employees by ensuring that they can handle loads safely.
This ROSPA approved course provides a thorough understanding of the dangers associated with poor manual handling and the techniques and solutions required to help make the workplace a safer environment.
There are 5 modules included with questions at the end of each. Candidates will be able to review their answers before submission, with 3 attempts allowed for each module in order to achieve a 75% pass rate.
Impartial Examinations are undertaken under the control of UK Certification and this is separate from any Training Activity.
