Manual Handling Awareness

This manual handling awareness course will provide guidance of the safe lifting and handling techniques and give an understanding of the relevant regulations, as well as an overview of the risks associated with manual lifting activities. Where possible the manual handling operations should be designed to suit individuals, not the other way round. Good practice on manual handling techniques has an important part to play in reducing the risk of back and other injuries although it should not be regarded as a substitute for a safe system of work.
