Manual Handling for Retail & Leisure
In the UK, thousands of staff suffer from injuries and discomfort each year. The risk of injuries from manual handling increases when workers do not have the information or training necessary to enable them to work safely.
The Manual Handling e-learning course ensures employers and employees are trained in the principles and practices of safe manual handling.
This course provides the necessary information and training for organisations to understand more about the risks associated with manual handling, how to conduct a risk assessment and how to implement appropriate control measures.
Employers have a legal duty to protect their employees; non-compliance may lead to action by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or other agencies. Employees handling objects are at risk, but injuries shouldn’t be accepted as normal. Employers must reduce risks and provide proper training.
