Manual handling and lifting.
To date, all the scientific evidence points to the fact that manual handling and lifting training does not work. We believe that this is partly because of the way that manual handling training is delivered in the UK, and that a radical rethink is required with how to get the messages of good practice across to a workforce.
We believe that training should be delivered by trainers who understand anatomy and ergonomics in detail. We also believe that training should be specific to the workforce been trained, rather than a generic ‘death by PowerPoint’. Clearly, some theoretical training must be done as part of the package, but the practical elements of the training must be on the shop floor, where the workforce performs their daily tasks and deal with the problems that the workforce are having rather than what the trainer wants to train.
We have developed a package of training which is as economic as traditional training, but delivers real-world training for real-world problems. Please call us today to discuss how we can help you deliver manual handling of lifting training your workforce that will not only fulfil your legal requirements for training, but also help the workforce understand and tackle the issues they face on a day-to-day basis.
