Manual Handling Course

Course Overview

Under the manual handling operations regulations 1992, you must provide suitable manual handling training.
Many companies are under the impression that this does not apply to them because they are primarily an office environment. This is a misconception that can have serious consequences. Most back and spinal pain is caused by continual bad lifting, twisting and stretching and not single trauma injuries.
The First Response team can help, our training includes the use of theory, props, tuition and practical lifting techniques to teach you how to lift, carry, move and transport objects safely.
Courses can be tailored to your exact needs, from an office to a production / warehouse facility.
This is carried out at your premises so avoiding any disruption to your business. All that is required is a small office / room.
There are several benefits to your company such as:
  • Help employers and employees avoid costly, stressful accidents
  • Lowering insurance premiums
