Employers have a legal obligation to properly assess and control manual handling risks, and injuries caused through poor manual handling are a common reason for sickness absence.

We offer two courses, one for operators who may be at risk from manual handling injuries, the other is for managers / supervisors who need to understand potential risks and comply with legal requirements.


Course overview

Employers have a legal obligation to properly assess and control manual handling risks. This responsibility includes doing the utmost to prevent injuries caused through poor manual handling, a common cause of sickness absence. Keeping safe is in everyone’s interest: reduce the risks, reduce the number of absentee days for the business.

We offer two different manual handling courses to help businesses minimise sick days and keep on the right side of HSEfor operators who may be at risk from manual handling injuries;

3-hour course for operators

The 3-hour training uses revised and improved material and is delivered by a RoSPA qualified trainer. It covers all aspects of safe manual handling, including lifting techniques and LITE. Plus, the course explores in some depth why safe manual handling is so important to an employee’s health now and future wellbeing.

Our training is flexible and designed for those who undertake manual handling activities in their working role.

It can be customised so that delegates can experience handling objects which they would normally encounter in their workplace.

Course overview

The essential components operators will learn are:

  • Base positions and movements;
  • Good handling techniques;
  • Basic physiology (spine, anatomy, structure and function).

Course overview

Managers, supervisors and responsible employees will learn:

  • Legal requirements;
  • Ergonomics;
  • Implementing safe handling policies;
  • Risk assessments.
