3. Manual Handling Course

To comply with current Health & Safety legislation, workers engaged in manual handling must be given training in safe manual handling techniques. The training and knowledge provided will enable the learner to risk assess and safely carry out manual handling tasks. This will reduce the risk of injuries particularly to the back. Back injuries caused by incorrect manual handling techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers compensation claims.


Provision of manual handling training is part of an employer’s legal requirements. Our instructors are experienced trainers and are fully compliant with the latest QQI Level 6 Instructor requirements.


On successful completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate of completion. Certification is valid for 3 years.
