This training will show your staff how to carry out manual handling tasks correctly and therefore avoid possible injuries. By training your staff how to conduct manual handling safely you are complying with your legal requirements. Back injuries caused by incorrect manual handling techniques are one of the most frequent causes of workers compensation claims.
