Manual Handling Training Southport – More than 25% of all accidents reported to the HSE each year are associated with manual handling resulting in hours of downtime for many companies! This course is delivered in your workplace anywhere in Southport and the surrounding areas. The 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.
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.
Manual handling causes over a third of all workplace injuries. These include work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as pain and injuries to arms, legs and joints, and repetitive strain injuries of various sorts.
The term manual handling covers a wide variety of activities including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and carrying. If any of these tasks are not carried out appropriately there is a risk of injury.
We have delivered Manual handling training directly to many businesses in and around the Southport area and each business has its own unique working environment. We have a good understanding of this and hence, we design each manual handling course specific and bespoke to your working environment.
