This Manual Handling Training course teaches you all you need to know about safe manual handling. Being competent in safe carrying and lifting techniques for the workplace is a legal requirement, and this online Manual Handling Course provides everything you need to know. It includes lifting techniques, ‘LITE’ and ‘TILE’ and explains the importance of safe manual handling. Correct Manual Handling is so important to your everyday health, especially if you’re regularly lifting. Incorrect handling, lifting and carrying causes around 21% of all non-fatal workplace injuries
This training course is broken down into 4 sections
The introduction to our course covers your back – what it’s made up of, how it works, how flexible and strong it is, but also how fragile it can be if it’s not look after. It explains what damage can be done with poor lifting techniques, and it offers an interesting insight into why children naturally lift objects correctly.
The second section of our Manual Handling Training explains how you can prevent aches, pains and more serious damage by maintaining a healthy back on a daily basis. It covers correct (neutral) postures, working in the Power Zone, and how to successfully break bad postural habits.
Before you begin any Manual Handling task, you need to complete a TILE assessment to reduce the risk of injury. This section takes you through the four different stages (Task. Individual. Load. Environment) and provides you with additional advice about what to do during these tasks.
Our fourth and final section provides step-by- step demonstrations on how to carry out various types of lift – from the floor, waist height, and head height; it takes you through a two-stage lift, team lift, and loading a trolley too. This section also covers the three Golden Rules of Manual Handling.
Incorrect manual handling is responsible for more than a third of all workplace injuries that are reported to authorities each year.
If manual handling is not carried out properly it can have significant consequences on your health (musculoskeletal disorders), particularly if you carry out manual handling operations regularly.
Maintaining a healthy back is also vital in enabling you to meet the demands of your everyday responsibilities – at work, at home, and during your leisure time. This training equips you with all the tools you need to protect your back whilst conducting a wide variety of Manual Handling tasks. This course looks at safe moving and handling, the ‘TILE’ technique (Task Individual. Load. Task. Environment.) and explains why safe workplace lifting is so important to your everyday health.
Effective Manual Handling Training can help in ensuring best practice and reduces the likelihood of injuries as a direct result of manual handling.
