This manual handling training course can be used to refresh knowledge and raise awareness of the risks from manual handling activities.

Manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work and is responsible for over a third of all workplace injuries.

This online course helps employers and employees understand the risks associated with manual handling.

This Manual Handling online training course contains a variety of text based content, along with image, video, quiz, and other content as necessary to assist your learning.

The Manual Handling training course has been developed to be easy to understand and simple to navigate.

On completion of the course you will be assessed with a multiple choice test. Once you have passed the assessment you will be able to download your certificate for your records. The certificate is supplied in PDF format.
