Is this the right Manual Handling course for you?

This manual handling course is one of a range of online workplace safety courses that we offer.

Almost all workplaces involve an element of lifting, moving and carrying items from place to place.

Doing it safely can be the key between ongoing good health and long-term disorders, pain and significant health consequences.

This online course ensures you have covered the basics of manual handling, although you may still need further practical training after completing this course.

While this course can be taken by any employee, it is particularly useful for workers whose job involves frequent lifting, such as manual workers, delivery drivers, agricultural workers, construction workers, and warehouse and factory staff.

This online Manual Handing awareness course is designed to help employers meet their obligations under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
