MANUAL HANDLING
Manual handling, or to be accurate, incorrect manual handling, is one of the most common causes of injury at work. To try and combat manual handling problems, the Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced.
Our IIRSM and CPD approved awareness course will provide employees with a greater awareness of the dangers that poor handling poses and how to develop good habits.
