This half-day course helps you understand the reasons for carrying out manual handling tasks with the least possible risk to you and your back.
Statistics show that the majority of accidents in the workplace come from manual handling incidents. Pushing, pulling, carrying as well as lifting and setting down are areas of potential danger. You need to become aware of the risks associated with manual handling, how to recognise lifting problems and to be able to consider alternatives.
The course will be delivered to FETCA level 6 standard.
