Online Manual Handling Training

Getting your employees trained in manual handling, is not only a legal requirement, but it’s also a smart business decision. More than 1 in 3 workplace injuries are caused by bad lifting technique. These injuries are generally musculoskeletal in nature and are often back related. Injuries like this can be painful and debilitating, which can lead to employees needing a large number of days off work. To avoid this drain on the business labour pool, firms need to train their team. By offering online manual handling training, you can help businesses protect their workforce. However, this training should be accessible and engaging.

What is online manual handling training?

Manual handling training can be split into two parts. There is the awareness side of the training. This covers the relevant regulations and legislation, along with the theory behind safe lifting practices. A practical training session typically follows the theoretical part of the training.

With two-part training like this, it can be challenging to get all your employees together for the time necessary. That’s why online training is an excellent option here. Each employee can complete the theoretical part of the training at a time that suits them. Then you only need to arrange the practical component of the training course.

Online training is an engaging choice for a topic that is often repeated. Manual handling if often a type of training that a lot of employees can be resistant to engaging with. Many think they already know how to lift things, so don’t pay attention. Professionals present our online training. We use stylish graphics and interactive games and questions to keep everyone engaged. This means that you have reassurance  that firms and their employees engage with the training. No one can just switch off during the presentation.
