Manual Handling Training

Manual handling training covers a wide variety of tasks including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling and carrying. When any of these tasks are not carried out properly, there is a risk of injury. More than a third of all reported injuries which result in someone being off work for more than three days are caused by manual handling. GH Safety’s Manual Handling Training Course is aimed at those who wish to gain a basic understanding of safe manual handling practices and principles which they can then apply to their individual work tasks.

Benefits of Manual Handling Training to your Organisation
