This online Manual Handling training teaches you all you need to know about safe lifting, moving and handling, including lifting techniques, LITE, and why Manual Handling training is so important to your everyday health – more specifically, comprehensive guidance on how to maintain a healthy back.
Manual Handling Training Course Contents
1. Your back during Manual Handling
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.
2. Daily Tasks
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.
3. LITE Assessment
Before you begin any Manual Handling task, you need to complete a LITE assessment to reduce the risk of injury. This section takes you through the four different stages (Load Individual Task Environment) and provides you with additional advice about what to do during these tasks.
Our fourth and final section provides step-by- step demonstrations on how to carry out various types of lift – from the floor, waist height, and head height; it takes you through a two-stage lift, team lift, and loading a trolley too. This section also covers the three Golden Rules of Manual Handling.
