Under the Health and Safety at Work act 1974 all employers have a duty of care to their employees, service users and anyone else that could be affected by work-related activities. Poor manual handling is one of the main causes of musculo-skeletal problems leading to absences from work and it is essential that an employer can demonstrate they have done everything ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’ to reduce risk from manual handling by ensuring good staff training.
Our trainers have been working within the care sector for many years and have gained considerable experience and knowledge from a varied and broad range of roles. Our trainers are highly qualified and experienced within their fields of expertise.
To ensure competence is updated & skills refreshed.
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Competently assess and reduce potential risks from manual handling people and associated equipment.
