Manual Handling Risk Assessment
This course is aimed at those responsible for performing a manual handling risk assessment. It will give attendees a basic understanding of the factors necessary to complete a manual handling risk assessment, and ensure their own safety and that of their colleagues and staff they supervise.
Delegates will undertake a number of practical manual handling risk assessments throughout the session. As this manual handling training course is very interactive, it is advised that delegates are reasonably fit and able to take part in the majority of practical manual handling activities, and wear clothes best to suit the occasions.
The Manual Handling Risk Assessment course is based upon the principles of safe moving and handling of loads known as the 'kinetic' approach to manual handling, and includes the following:
Each delegate on the Manual Handling Risk Assessment course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information, guidance and forms to assist manual handling risk assessors. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
Our health and safety consultants are qualified and experienced professionals with an appropriate background in this topic and in delivering engaging health and safety training. All consultants hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
The Manual Handling Risk Assessment course will be delivered over one day.
Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course.
