Employers have a duty to provide manual handling training courses to their staff.
Manual handling training is a legal requirement of the Manual Handling Regulations which is the main source of health & safety regulation for lifting & carrying loads at work.
Manoeuvres that involve lifting, pushing, pulling and twisting are referred to as health and safety manual handling tasks. Anyone who has to perform manual handling or move items in their workplace wherever they work has the right to be trained in Manual Handling.
CRS Training Services can provide Manual Handling Training delivered by qualified trainers covering a variety of topics from how to move objects correctly to the type of injuries sustained from incorrect actions. This Training can be carried out at CRS Training's site or at your premises.

at work is responsible for a third of workplace injuries, which translates in a curtailed
personal social life in addition to whatever problems at work ensue.
