Manual handling, also known as manual tasks, is any activity requiring effort to lift, move, push, pull, carry or hold any object, including a person.
Poor manual handling practice is one of the most common causes of injury to workers. These injuries are frequently severe and cannot always be completely treated, leading to chronic problems. Our short manual handling training course is designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of the relevant legislation, as well of the National Manual Handling Code of Practice. Participants will also learn the correct way to lift and carry items.
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.
