About Manual Handling in Industry

This course helps industrial workers understand the safety principles and implement them in practice when conducting manual handling work.

Why Is Manual Handling in Industry Important? 

Every year there are thousands of accidents and injuries that are directly correlated to guidelines of manual handling not being followed. These accidents and injuries result in countless pain and suffering, as well as lost time off work and debilitating injuries.
