Manual Handling Training Online

Manual handling, or more specifically, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury among those at work. Manual handling injuries are not limited to those that happen by simply lifting or carrying heavy loads. Injuries can happen when handling objects in a variety of ways including pulling, pushing, holding or restraining. Good posture and lifting techniques can help reduce these risks, but making sure all employees are correctly trained is the most effective way to prevent manual handling injury.
