Manual Handling Training

Regulations require a more formal approach to the subject of manual handling operations. Since the subject not only covers lifting but handling, pulling, pushing or moving by bodily force, the range is considerable and affects anyone in any organisation.

Our trainer was excellent – he struck exactly the right balance with information and fun. Excellent value for money. Sally Davis, RAD
