Manual Handling E-Learning Course
Manual handling is common in many jobs; it can be simply moving an object from one desk to another or be something more involved as removing heavy items from a rack mounted shelf. This course will explain the safe way to perform manual handling and identify where the use of equipment may be more suited. It will also describe the dangers of not following good manual handling practices.
The course has a multiple-choice test at the end and successful delegates will get a downloadable certificate to show they have completed and understood the contents of this course.
