Manual Handling Training Cheshire – The HSE receives reports of accidents annually, and it is alarming that more than 25% of them are caused by manual handling. This has resulted in numerous companies experiencing prolonged periods of downtime.

This course is delivered in your workplace anywhere in Cheshire and the surrounding areas. It is mandatory for employers to ensure that their staff members who lift or move loads are adequately trained in compliance with The Manual Handling Operations 1992. The course aims to assist employers in meeting this requirement.

Manual Handling Training Cheshire

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, as amended in 2002 (‘the Regulations’) apply to a wide range of manual handling activities, including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying. Basically, the load may be either animate, such as a person or an animal, or inanimate, such as a box or a trolley.

Prevention is certainly better than cure when it comes to back and limb injuries and that is why more and more companies are making sure their staff are properly trained in correct manual handling techniques.

We have a good understanding of this and hence, we design each manual handling course specific and bespoke to your working environment.

Manual handling injuries can happen anywhere people are at work – on farms and building sites, in factories, offices, warehouses, hospitals, banks, laboratories, and while making deliveries. Heavy manual labour, awkward postures, manual materials handling, and previous or existing injury are all risk factors in developing MSDs.
