Manual Handling Training Courses 


We are a reputable Manual Handling Training Provider. Our safety trainers are available to provide a Manual Handling Training Course. We cover Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary.

Manual handling is a huge part of our lives. We push, pull, carry and lift numerous times throughout the day. These Manual Handling Tasks not only apply to our work but also to our personal lives. Performing tasks incorrectly will eventually result in musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.

Our goal is to offer safety training to all sized companies. For example, if your team consists of 3 or more we can come to your site for group online training. Safety training of staff together onsite can be far more cost effective. This approach also allows training to be customised to suit your business needs.


Did you know?

Some people think of manual handling as being told how to lift a box. If it was as simple as that then no one would be getting injured in the process. Manual Handling injuries are a third of all injuries within the workplace in Ireland. Similarly, lower back pain affects approximately 80% of the population. So as a result of organising training for your staff you can help prevent your employees from getting injured. Therefore an injury free workplace is a more productive work place!


So how do I reduce Manual Handling Injuries in my workplace?

There are many ways to go about reducing these figures and avoiding a hefty claim from an employee: The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations 2007, Chapter 4 of Part 2 outlines the requirements that must be adhered to in relation to manual handling.
