Manual Handling Risk Assessments
What does the law require?
If your employees regularly lift, move or handle loads or if they carry out repetitive moving and handling tasks then they may be at risk of injury or long-term ill health. You must carry out a Manual Handling Risk Assessment of every activity to determine if the employee, including temporary employees, are at risk and if so put into place systems to reduce the risk.
We can carry out your Manual Handling Risk Assessments for you.
One of our qualified Manual Handling Risk Assessors will visit your premises and carry out the assessments with you. The cost depends on the number of different manual handling activities.
Manual Handling Risk Assessor Training
Train as a Manual Handling Risk Assessor on our one day course.
We provide high quality training enabling you to carry out your own Manual Handling Risk Assessments. This course has been recognised by the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.
We run open-scheduled courses throughout the year at our training centre in Peterborough or can offer closed courses at your premises.
Safe Manual Handling Training
We can provide your employees with Safe Lifting Training - a half day course, accredited by CIEH, that will teach them how to lift correctly, and the dangers of lifting incorrectly.
The training will enable delegates to make informed decisions about how they use their body to lift, carry, move and hold objects, this includes discussions about good posture for hands and arms as well as backs.
