Safe Manual Handling

Musculoskeletal disorders are the reason behind the majority of incidences of occupational ill health. In fact, over a third of absences from work over three days or longer, and almost 10% of major injuries are attributed to manual handling. The trouble with many of these injuries is that often they are not immediately obvious because they build up over time as a result of cumulative poor manual handling.

Statistics may give the bare bones of the story but scrape the surface and the reality of these injuries tells a more dismal tale of loss of earnings, missed promotions, loss of productivity and a person suffering from a painful injury. Learning how to conduct manual handling safely and effectively, therefore, is not something that can be looked on as a luxury, but should be viewed as a very definite necessity.

Safe Manual Handling is an eLearning course that has been especially designed for new starters to a workforce or for those who would like to refresh their knowledge of handling heavy or cumbersome loads, whatever the work environment. The objective of the online eLearning course is to reduce or eliminate the chance of an injury being sustained through manual handling.

Safe Manual Handling is a lucid and to the point online training resource; in fact, it will only take you five minutes to assimilate the information that it contains – five minutes that could save you from months, or even a lifetime, of pain.

The course covers a number of different relevant areas, which are: the law and manual handling; strategies for avoiding manual handling; reducing the risk of injury by making an assessment of the task, the load, and the environment; personal capacity for load handling; how the back works; safe lifting techniques; handling awkward loads; and risks in the office environment.
