The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) require employers to train staff involved in manual handling activities. With large numbers or high turnover of staff, it can sometimes prove more cost effective to have the training resource in your own company. This course is designed to enable staff to acquire sufficient knowledge and training competence to be able to prepare and deliver in company training to those staff at risk from manual handling activities, and to thus meet the above legislative requirements. It also incorporates the recent Health and Safety Executive guidance on ‘labelling loads’.
