Online Manual Handling Training is designed to teach learners (employers and employees) how to identiy hazardous manual hanlding activites and to asses the risk they present to the employee, our course takes a preventative approach to manging manual halding in the workpalce.

Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury at work, it is estimated that one third of wrokplace accidents that result in lost time are a direct result of manual handling activities. To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced. These are based on EEC Directives in both UK and Ireland.

The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employers must risk assess all hazardous activities and where the employer cannot emilnate the risk of injury (as far as is reasonably practicable) then employees must be trained by the employer to recognise hazardous loads and how to lift them correctly if they cannot avoid the need to lift, this includes training on the use of lifting equipment and team lifting. 

Online Manual Handling Training will go a long way to giving you greater awareness of the dangers that hazardous manual handling poses, as well as covering safe handling techniques, practical solutions to manual handling issues and the use of mechanical aids.
