Event Description:
Who should attend

Any member of staff - not just those who lift heavy loads.


This session will provide participants with the knowledge and understanding to help reduce the risk of injury through manual handling activities. It is designed to provide training for all personnel, not just those who lift heavy loads. Whether you sit at a desk, use a computer, or even pick up a piece of paper off the floor, at some point you will be moving your body in an awkward way.

The Manual Handling Workshop looks at how you can reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others by addressing issues such as:
- how to look after our back, muscles and joints;
- how to make your home and workplace safer; and
- how to solve handling and moving problems in the home and work place.

Participants will be required to complete the Essential Skillz eLearning Manual Handling module before attending the practical workshop.

Attendance must be agreed with your HOD/ Line Manager before booking

To attend: Free to members of staff
