Manual Handling Awareness Training

Lifting heavy boxes, stacking shelves, or moving items across a workspace might be part and parcel of an employee’s role, but these tasks can result in injury if not carried out correctly and with an awareness of the risks.

Make sure employees can work safely, comfortably and productively with our Manual Handling training course.
