This ½ or 1 day course has been designed to provide Manual Handling Training and practical assessment of delegates who work on construction and utility sites to promote effective control of the risks.
All are vulnerable to manual handling injuries (whether at work or at home), so all will benefit from a knowledge of good technique.
The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidence in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice.
The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training – supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks prevention.
This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices across construction and utility sites.
A range of subjects are covered that will equip delegates to:
Understand the reasons for safe manual handling.
Understand how manual handling risk assessments contribute to improving health and safety.
Understand the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements associated with manual handling safety.
Be able to apply safe manual handling principles.
A variety of activities, oral, multiple choice, and written questions plus onsite assessment.
Once the delegate has successfully completed the course and assessment, the results will be submitted to the awarding body and cards will be issued to the delegate in due course.
Certification for this course is valid for 3 years from the date of training. To remain certified in this area, you will need to retake the assessment before the expiry date on your card.
