What will you learn?

Manual handling activities at work are a common cause of workplace accidents and longer term disorders such as back pain and reduced mobility.  Successful completion will prepare students to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of safer methods and tasks, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors.

  • State the principals for controlling manual handling risks and apply these in a practical context.
