We Offer Manual Handling Training in Essex
Manual handling training refers to the lifting and carrying of objects in a way which is safe for you and others. It is a legal requirement in the workplace for those who are lifting and carrying items to be competent in the correct techniques - but it is also vital for their health.
It is currently estimated that a high percentage of workplace injuries are due to manual handling not being performed correctly, and that this can be prevented with the right training. Mistakes in lifting leads to injuries — whether major or minor — and create significant strain on both the employees and the business.
There is an accepted way to approach manual handling safely — especially with lifting techniques such as ‘TILE’ and ‘LITE’, which help people to remember and implement the safe order in which to lift.
Our courses teach participants everything they need to know about safe manual handling. This not only helps to prevent their own injuries, but it keeps others safe too.
The Importance of Manual Handling Training
Manual handling does not only refer to extremely heavy or frequent lifting; it can be a regular part of any working day, and not just in industries associated with heavy lifting, such as construction. Even in an office environment, employees may be required to lift boxes, files, stock, equipment, and more.
Our techniques and training are suitable for any workplace, and all members of personnel. Whether lifting is integral to their role, or merely an irregular occurrence, performing it securely and safely is always of paramount importance.
You will learn how to prevent injury, correct postural bad habits and issues, increase safety, and improve the ease with which you lift items. This has great short-term benefits for your comfort and capability in the workplace, while delivering long-term benefits too.
Through preserving your health and body by protecting the joints, ligaments, and spine, you are less likely to experience the health problems associated with manual handling, later down the line.
We are delighted to have assisted a wide variety of businesses in their first aid and manual handling techniques, increasing their safety and security in the workplace. We would love to discuss how we could help you and your team achieve the same.
We offer a range of courses in first aid and safety related subjects. We offer extensive first aid at work courses, paediatric first aid courses, and also first aid for mental health, as well as manual handling training.
Our first aid at work courses are offered at a variety of levels, aimed at beginners, intermediate, and more advanced. Our instructors are highly knowledgeable and experienced, having handled a range of real-life first aid situations in the workplace and beyond.
Participants will learn about caring for an unconscious casualty, managing bleeding, choking, shock, seizures, heart attacks, burns, falls, and other injuries. A serious situation can be prevented from becoming an emergency with correctly administered first aid.
Our paediatric first aid courses are ideal for those who work regularly with children, such as teachers, child minders, and tutors, but are also highly suitable for parents.
Our popular first aid for mental health courses are designed to improve the understanding and support for mental health issues in the workplace. With approximately 1 in 4 of us experiencing a mental health issue at some point in our lives, this is a growing issue.
