Manual Handling training is essential in reducing injury to all individuals in the work place. Health and Safety Act 1974 places a legal duty and a responsibility to manage and protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. 

Our CPD accredited online course is suitable for all staff who may be called upon to undertake Moving Handling in the course of their duties. It will help employees understand their legal responsibility and associated legal framework as well as the risk factors involved during moving and handling. The course will help achieve employer compliance in regards to ensuring that all staff are trained and instructed on how to deal with risks. 

It will approximately take 2 hours and upon successful completion of the session you will be able to undertake a questionnaire and certificate yourself.
