Manual Handling

What Is It?

Back injuries account for the highest percentage of injuries within the workplace, the majority of which are due to poor lifting techniques. More than a third of over three day injuries can be attributed to lifting objects within the workplace.

Manual handling training courses can help bridge the gap between lost work days and healthy staff. Our courses inform candidates about the risk of injury, and come up with practical solutions, which can help people avoid these injuries in the first place.

Train Aid has a strong base of enthusiastic instructors; who will create a professional and personable environment for you and your staff.

Life On The Course

If poor lifting techniques are causing so many injuries and sick leave, then it makes sense to undertake training to counteract this imbalance. Manual handling courses can help educate individuals and businesses, by teaching correct lifting techniques. Our training can also help candidates understand why and how injuries happen, and identify risk factors to help stop injuries occurring.

As an employer it is your responsibility to reduce the risk of injury when your staff are involved with lifting objects within the workplace. The prevention and control of Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) has been highlighted as a priority by the Health and Safety Commission (HSE). The resulting benefit for you is a healthy and happy workforce, and less cumulated sick leave.
