This amusing short video Manual Handling Awareness course ensures your compliance with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 and the HSAW Act 1974.

This Manual Handling Awareness course identifies the risks, causes and consequences of poor handling techniques. It looks at the best practice you need to follow to help prevent injury to yourself and others.

Who is the Manual Handling Awareness course for?

Pretty much everyone!

Manual handling injuries can happen in any workplace – on building sites, in factories, offices, warehouses, shops, hospitals, schools, banks, laboratories, and while making deliveries or though repetitive working. Heavy manual labour, awkward postures, manual materials handling, and previous or existing injury, are all risk factors in developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). It could be a very regular, or an infrequent task in a person’s day-to-day work.

Good manual handling techniques are a vital part of keeping healthy and productive.

This is important training – no-one wins if the trainee isn’t concentrating. Shout Out Safety courses are entertaining exactly because we’re serious about Health & Safety training. Learning is easier when people are engaged (and they engage much more when they’re entertained).
