What is Manual Handling?
Manual Handling Training is a key part of all staff training. Did you know that incorrect manual handling causes over a third of all workplace injuries? Manual Handling Training will help to reduce bodily injury whilst handling objects. The law states that employers have a legal responsibility to provide adequate training for those who perform manual handling tasks in their day to day role. So that’s everyone at work. As we all lift things.
