Manual Handling (Half Day)

Back injuries account for an extraordinary percentage of all injuries at work, contributing significantly to the huge number of lost working days, the costs of which are borne by the employer, and the injured person in terms of suffering discomfort or disability.

In most work environments staff may be required to lift, carry or move objects which, if moved incorrectly, can lead to accidents, injury and in the worst cases legal action.

Effective training in manual handling techniques can help to reduce the risk to the employee, subsequent lost time and the costs to the employer.
