Moving and Handling Principles course is essential support for all working professionals who manually handle objects, sit at the keyboard or stand in tiring positions.
These activities are the main activities that cause work-related musculoskeletal disorders, such as back and joint pain.
The Moving and Handling Principles is a combination of classroom based learning and also hands on practical instruction.
This course instructs candidates on the safe moving of inanimate objects and not the moving and handling of people.
The course covers how to move objects safely, so that risk to injury or strain is reduced.
We recommend all employers consider this training as part of each new employee's induction.
Half-day (approx 3 hours depending on number of delegates)
Candidates are assessed by the trainer through observation, and if successful they will receive a certificate of attendance valid for three years.
