Manual Handling Training

If your staff are required to do any manual handling in their work, you must ensure they are properly trained. Without safe manual handling processes, your staff are at risk of injuring themselves or others during their working day.

Pro Safety Management offer accredited manual handling awareness courses to equip your staff with the skills they need to work safely. As well as discussing safe manual handling techniques and the risk of injury if not completed correctly, our syllabus covers conducting risk assessments and the duties of both employee and employer for manual handling.
