NUCO - Manual Handling Course (Principles and Practice) - FAA Level 2 (1 Day Accredited)
The course is suitable for a wide range of staff from those with obvious work-related handling tasks through to sales and office staff who may appear to have much less manual handling involved in their work-related activities. 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 may 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 in any situation.
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.
Continuous practical assessment is carried out by the instructor throughout the day, including a written assessment.
A certificate and card will be issued subject to successful assessment. This is a lifetime qualification, although refresher training of a three yearly period is always recommended.
