What is Manual Handling Train the Trainer and who can benefit?

26 February 2021

Manual handling is a major part of many job descriptions. Unbeknown to most, manual handling isn’t just reserved for the lifting and carrying of inanimate objects. Manual handling techniques are called upon for the transport and support of people and animals too.

As anyone who undertakes manual handling will know, the risk of accidental injury is particularly high when lifting, carrying and lowering loads. Manual handling accidents are particularly common as a result, with one third of accidents at work caused by poor manual handling.

The use of incorrect techniques can have a detrimental and long-lasting impact on both the professional and personal lives of those affected. It’s only through training that injuries like these can be prevented, and that’s where your manual handling trainer and our Manual Handling Train the Trainer course will come in…
