Manual Handling

Manual Handling Training Course Providers

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

We cater for all sized companys, so no matter what size your team is please feel free to contact us. For teams of 3 or more we can come to your site for Group Onsite Training. Most importantly training is done at a time and day that suits your buisness needs. Training staff together onsite can be far more cost effective and also allows the training to be customised to suit your buisness needs.

Manual handling activities are a huge part of our lifes because 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 lifes. If you are performing tasks incorrectly this will eventually result in musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.

Did you know ?

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. An injury free workplace is a more productivve 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.
