This Manual handling at work training teaches learners about the 8 principles that can help to underpin safe manual handling. In addition, learners will be able to explore practical tips for implementing these principles as they work.

One of the biggest causes of injury in offices is the lifting and moving of loads. Obviously a very common activity, this accounts for over a third of all accounted injuries. Many injuries involve strains or sprains. These in themselves can be enough to cause a lot of pain and suffering to even the strongest and fittest of us.

In addition to sprains and strains many handling incidents involve crushing to feet, hands or other body parts.

All such injuries can be prevented by taking care and educating employees through online manual handling training courses.
