Manual Handling Course

(half-day course)

Manual Handling training courses are suitable for anyone whose work involves lifting or moving loads. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require all employers to carry out training for staff who lift or move loads. Manual Handling training courses help you comply with this legislation.

Manual Handling training courses last three hours and are suitable for staff training on your premises. We also run courses open to individuals at our training centre.

All teaching materials are provided by us. A certificate of attendance is awarded to each candidate.
