More than a third of all reportable injuries of over three days involve manual handling, and around 10% of major injuries are linked to manual handling. It has a major impact on all workplaces, and costs the economy hundreds of millions of pounds every year.
In the UK, 1.1m people reported that they suffered from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) caused, or made worse, by work. It is estimated 12.3m working days are lost annually due to work-related MSDs. The need for Manual Handling Training is paramount.
Manual Handling is an important aspect in everyday life and something that should not be ignored by both employers and employees and this is why we have designed a fully interactive manual handling training course to educate learners on the risks involved. The interactive course guides the learner through the separate elements of manual handling and explores the safety precautions involved with handling objects and the responsibilities of the person(s) involved in such activities.
