Health & Safety Training Courses.
The manual handling of loads regulation and its related schedule sets out a framework for employers to reduce the risk of injury from manual handling activity. It seeks to reduce the very large incidence of injury and ill health arising from the manual handling of loads at work. The regulations place duties on employers in respect of their own employees. Almost every occupational setting needs some form of manual handling.
To comply with current Health and Safety legislation, staff engaged in manual handling must be given training in safe manual handling techniques. This training trains you how to carry out manual handling tasks correctly and therefore avoid back injuries. Back injuries caused by incorrect manual handling techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers compensation claims.
