Manual Handling is defined as 'any transporting or supporting of a load (including the lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving) by hand or by bodily force'. In effect, any activity that requires an individual to lift, move or support a load will be classified as a manual handling task.
The standards for this course are set by the All Wales Passport Scheme and enables employees to contribute to the development of safer manual handling methods and tasks.
It is suitable for anyone who has to carry out lifting or moving tasks in their daily routine. This course will enable your employees to develop safer manual handling techniques in the work place, reducing the risk of injury. The qualification introduces candidates to the hazards and risks involved in manual handling and outlines what to expect from a manual handling assessment.
Apart from the obvious benefit of reducing the risk of harm to your employees, this course will also help you to avoid loss of earnings or loss of productivity that any injury would cause your organisation.
