Online Manual Handling Training
(IIRSM & CPD Approved)

Our Online Manual Handling Training Course covers all areas of Manual Handling in an e-learning format.

Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury at work. To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced.

The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.

Manual Handling

Manual Handling is an inevitability in most workplaces for many employees, and the injuries caused by manual handling tasks being carried out incorrectly can result in a significant amount of time lost at work; not to mention the legal implications such an injury can have if the correct manual handling training was not in place.

All employers have a statutory duty to offer their staff the necessary health and safety training needed to fulfil their role at work safely. Hence, our manual handling course is a cost-effective and easy way of complying with health and safety regulations and fulfilling your responsibilities.

This first-class course is aimed at providing learners with a comprehensive understanding of manual handling tasks so that they can identify hazards and prevent injuries.
