Manual Handling Awareness
Any job that involves heavy labour or manual material handling may include a high risk for injury on the job. Manual material handling entails lifting, but also usually includes climbing, pushing, pulling, and pivoting, all of which pose the risk of injury. The most commonly reported workplace accidents and illness involved injuries are caused by not being aware of basic manual handling techniques. This course is ideal for anyone who moves heavy loads, or people, as part of their role and will benefit all employees, so that they understand the risks associated with manual handling and apply the principles of safer handling to their work.
