Course Description

Introduction Manual handling remains one of the main causes of occupational injuries within the UK and is associated with more over-three-day injuries reported to the HSE (41%) than any other occupational task (2003-2004). Prevention and control of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) is currently one of HSE's major priorities and as such an alternative, simpler risk assessment method called the MAC tool has been developed, as well as a major revision of the Guidance to the Manual Handling Regulations. This course will equip you with the knowledge to help recognise, assess and reduce manual handling risks in your organisation. It is suited to employers and employee representatives who intend to begin the process of manual handling risk assessment and control within their companies. It will also benefit those already involved in manual handling risk reduction who require more formal or in-depth training in this subject, including training in the use of specific manual handling assessment tools. Each course will cover: Principles of manual handling Understanding injurys Common types of injury Legal aspects Key risk factors Manual handling risk assessment (MAC and L23) Pushing and pulling Control and reduction of risk Key principles of good handling techniques Case studies
