Manual Handling Training Course


The Manual Handling course will give participants a basic understanding of the factors necessary to ensure their own safety and that of their work colleagues. This manual handling training course is based upon the principles of safe moving and handling of loads known as the 'kinetic' approach to manual handling.

At the conclusion of the course, delegates will have an understanding of safe manual handling principles and posses the skills to avoid the dangers of careless and unskilled manual handling.

Who Should Attend?

Our Manual Handling course is aimed at anyone who undertakes manual handling operations, and as it is very interactive, it is advised that delegates are reasonably fit and able to take part in the majority of practical handling activities and wear suitable clothing.

Course Content

The following elements are covered during the course:

  • Manual Handling & Health and Safety Legislation
  • Manual Handling Injuries
  • Manual Handling Risks
  • Manual Handling Techniques
  • Practical Activities

Course Material

Each delegate on the Manual Handling course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist workers.

The Manual Handling course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor through both manual handling theory and practical exercises.

Course Tutor

Our health and safety trainers are qualified and experienced health and safety 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).

Course Duration

Our Manual Handling course is delivered over half a day (three hours). This also provides the option to deliver two sessions in one day to accommodate a large number of employees split into two groups, so that not all of your employees need to be away from the workplace at the same time.


Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the Manual Handling course.

Certificates will be issued to participants who satisfactorily demonstrate that they are able to follow the principles taught on the course through practical exercises.

This course is primarily delivered in-house at your premises. The course content can be tailored to your specific requirements, taking into account the specific dangers and working practices of your particular company and industry.
