This online manual handling training course will teach you all you need to know about safe manual handling. It includes information on the lifting techniques, ‘LITE’ and ‘TILE’, and explains the importance of safe manual handling. Correct manual handling is so important to everyday health, especially if you’re regularly lifting. Providing training on safe carrying and lifting techniques in the workplace is a legal requirement in any situation where your staff are required to do any lifting, lowering, pulling, or pushing as part of their job.
- Learn how to lift safely, using techniques such as ‘LITE’ and ‘TILE’
- Learn how to carry out ‘LITE’ assessments to reduce the risk of injury
- Learn how to correct bad postural habits and how to work in the ‘Power Zone’
The introduction to our course covers your back – what it’s made up of, how it works, how flexible and strong it is, but also how fragile it can be if it’s not look after. It explains what damage can be done with poor lifting techniques, and it offers an interesting insight into why children naturally lift objects correctly.
The second section of our Manual Handling Training explains how you can prevent aches, pains and more serious damage by maintaining a healthy back on a daily basis. It covers correct (neutral) postures, working in the Power Zone, and how to successfully break bad postural habits.
