Manual Handing

Response First Training Centre manual handling courses are intended to provide students with an understanding of how to safely handle loads. The courses cover the practical aspects of lifting, lowering, carrying, pushing and pulling loads.

Response First Training Centre course also aims to cover information on the human spinal system, risk assessment, the legal responsibility of employers to their employees and techniques for the prevention of accidents.

The manual handling course involves knowledge development, and a series of practical exercises, followed by scenarios that allow the students to put their skills into practise. Our manual handling courses are suitable for employees from any sector or industry and the students will develop the abilities and skills to ensure the risk of injuries is reduced.

FACT: Manual handling is the cause of more than a third of all reported injuries, which result in employees being off work for more than three days. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) require employers to conduct risk assessments of manual handling activities that their employees undertake and to provide the appropriate training.
