This on-line training course is for employees, supervisors and managers who may be required to lift, carry or move containers or equipment in the course of their regular employment.

This course is not designed for manual employees who may be required to regularly lift and carry heavy loads, awkward loads or group lifting – specialist training can be provided for these workers.

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the legal duties of employers and employees with regards to manual handling.
  • Identify the hazards associated with manual handling.
  • Provide examples of correct manual handling techniques that can prevent injury.
  • State the types of injuries associated with manual handling operations.

The course is free and available at any time through our eLearning platform, OLLE.
