This half-day Manual Handling course is for anyone who’s job role involves lifting and moving loads manually, as well as with the use of lifting equipment. This course teaches positive manual handling behaviour – and is highly practical, to ensure the correct behaviour is understood and demonstrated.

This course is designed to help reduce the number of manual handling injuries within a company, which can be costly to any organisation.

Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language. 

This course is made up of lectures, demonstrations and delegates practically learning to lift and move loads both manually and with the use of lifting equipment. The specifications of this course are set around the standard of ‘Manual Handling and Lifting of Loads (EUSREA115).

This course covers:

  • Taking suitable safety measures before lifting to protect self and others
  • Using approved lifting and handling techniques
  • Checking that any equipment needed is fit for use
  • Using lifting / handling equipment in line with company guidelines and manufacturers’ instructions
  • Planning a safe and efficient route for moving tools and equipment
  • Knowing your own responsibilities when asking others to help in lifting and handling operations

On completion of this course, delegates will be able to

  • Understand how to lift and move loads
