Manual Handling Lifting and Carrying

Practical Training

Lifting and Carrying Training



Lifting is a common cause of low back injury that is often preventable. Our correct lifting and carrying training course is designed to provide particpants with a short focussed session on the correct way to lift and carry items, as well as the hazards associated with manual handing.

Our manual handling training course is designed to train participants in how to carry out their work safely to remove the risk of injuries. The course teaches participants how to lift and move materials manually and/or use basic manual handling equipment in a safe manner. The training takes participants through both the theory of why we need to follow safe manual handling techniques and the application of demonstrating and practising safe lifting techniques.

Our course teaches particpants about proper manual handling techniques, and best practices for lifting objects safely.


Training Resources

Ask us about the vertebral simulator that we use to demonstrate spine and disc movements. These simulators have been sourced from overseas and are used so that Easy HR course participants are able to visually understand and view the physiology of the spine, as well as common manual handling injuries. The manual handling simulators allow course participants to feel and touch a simulation of the vertebra and discs. This facilitates more effective learning and recall.
