Manual Handling Technique
Is this course for me?
The course can be tailored directly to particular manual handling needs. For example previous sessions have been run for security and porters giving general technique training and to Pre School Centre staff focussing on the safe handling of babies and toddlers.
Please contact the Health and Safety Office regarding your particular needs.
The course looks at the principles of good posture and exercise as well as teh techniques for safe lifting and load handling. It also looks at managing back pain and what support is available to you.
At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Put good technique into practice.
- Recognise high risk manual handling situations.
- Understand the need for risk assessment and the importance of safe systems of work.
