Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work and this accounts for over a third of all workplace accidents.

This results in employees taking time off meaning that employers will potentially have pay sick pay and find cover during this time which is not ideal for either parties.

Injured staff will also mean that the workplace is less productive, so ultimately, less profitable too. 

Any job that involves lifting, pulling or pushing heavy objects requires manual handling training. It is the employer’s responsibility to consider and ensure the health and safety of all employees whilst at work.  

This can be done with the right training and our Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling will help you implement the correct safety measures to protect the well-being of you and your staff.

Benefits of a Manual Handling Course

Our Imperative Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling will give you an understanding of how to create and maintain a safe working environment. Your staff will become familiar with the current legislation, be taught how to analyse the causes of injury as well as learn the preventative measures that should be taken to avoid injury. In addition to this, you will also go through the risk assessment process and more.

As a nationwide company, we are able to deliver a high standard of training to you whilst keeping our prices affordable by using trainers close to your area.

As an employer, it is crucial for you to consider manual handling training for your staff. In turn, you and your business will reap the rewards.

By prioritising the safety and wellbeing of your employees, you are likely to build morale. Staff who are aware of health and safety risks are likely to be extra careful to take preventative measures to avoid any accidents from occurring.

This will, in turn, reduce the number of sick days your employees will have to take as a result of an accident or injury that has occurred at work, meaning a higher productivity level and higher profits.
