This manual handling course, by leading occupational safety trainers at ORT, ensures that you are complying with regulations and helps staff to stay safe and healthy in the workplace.

Incorrect manual handling of loads is one of the most common causes of injury at work, accounting for nearly one third of all reported accidents. The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations (2007) were introduced to help minimise the risk from manual handling operations. A requirement of these regulations is that employees are suitably informed and capable of performing manual handling operations. This manual handling course covers everything your staff need to know to handle goods in the workplace in a safe and effective manner.
