Manual Handling Training

The objective of manual handling training is to inform employees of the health hazards of lifting and carrying weights and what they can do to reduce the potential for strains and sprains.

Training consists of a presentation and DVD followed by a practical session of lifting techniques. Where possible, the use of equipment/machinery onsite is able to be used to demonstrate correct lifting and moving techniques. Training time is approximately 1-1.5 hours, with a maximum of 10-15 trainees. Requires space or approx 1.5m per person.
