Description

This Manual Handling General Awareness Training Course will help you develop your manual handling skills and general awareness of manual handling.

Manual Handling- Lifting and handling is something we do every day, most of the time we don’t think about the risks and the damage that we could bring to ourselves.

Damage, injury and pain due to poor manual handling techniques is only a lift away – even in the safety of your own home you are at risk.

It is estimated that 1.1 million people in Britain suffer from musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) caused or made worse by their current or past work. Often the MSDs are because of manual handling incidents. An estimated 12.3 million working days were lost in one year because of such incidents, with each sufferer taking an average of 20 days off.

Nearly all jobs involve some form of manual handling and the use of poor techniques to move material is the most common cause of injury at work.

This manual handling training course will provide you with an insight into the importance of taking care of your body and in particular your back and neck when lifting, pushing or pulling objects.

It will also provide you with an understanding of the regulations surrounding manual handling and provide clear techniques and guidance on correct manual handling.

By the end of this training course participants will:

  • Be aware of the dangers they face in the working environment

  • Be able to explain the make-up of and dangers to the spine

  • Able to assess and approach a lift

  • Be aware of lifting techniques

  • Have practised lifting techniques in a safe environment

This course is suitable for anyone involved in lifting, pulling or pushing of any kind in the workplace.
