This program is designed to allow people involved in manual handling to undertake a valid risk assessment of manual handling tasks and to act on that risk assessment in their workplace.
The course defines what manual handling is and then follows a step by step risk management process looking at the hazards associated with these tasks, the way the risks can be assessed, the way these risks might be eliminated and the control methods that can be used to reduce risks to an acceptable level if elimination of the risks is not possible. The course then looks at how a process of monitoring and review can be carried out to make sure that the process continues to work effectively.
The program is followed by a quiz which requires a pass mark of 80% to be considered competent.
A certificate is available to print off on satisfactory completion of the course and the quiz.
