Manual Handling Training Courses

Manual Handling is a physical activity that takes place in every workplace, and in some cases the activity does not pose problem. However it can be a potential workplace hazard when an employee is required to handled very heavy loads, which could result in a back injury. Manual handling training is required under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, (General Application) Regulations 2007, Chapter 4.
