Manual Handling Courses Chester – 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. This course will help employers comply with The Manual Handling Operations 1992 which state that employers are responsible for ensuring that staff who lift or move loads are properly trained.
