Principles of Manual Handling


This course is all about the theory side of manual handling. That includes for example, where everyone stands legally, long term and sudden effects of bad practices, how best to use certain principles to stay safe and healthy, plus losts more. The PRINCIPLES OF MANUAL HANDLING course is a CIEH, OFQUAL accredited course of 3 hours duration, followed by a straight forward, multi-choice questions examination.


The above type of manual handling training provides essential learning but it is best accompanied by the MANUAL HANDLING -  'PRACTICE' course. Again, this is a CIEH, OFQUAL accredited course. However, this covers practical activities and students are assessed on their abilities to carry out their learning by 'handling' objects in a number of different situations. 

The beauty of these courses is that with prior consultation, they can be adapted to suit the requirements of different clients workplace requirements. 

The photograph above is one group of events students undertaking the examination for the PRINCIPLES of MANUAL HANDLING COURSE. Later they went on to put their learning into practice with 'hands-on' training in a typical working environement. 

Both courses can be delivered on the same day. They are both Level 2, Chartered Institute of Environmental Health manual handling accredited courses.
