The Principles of Moving and Handling (Objects)

The Principles of Moving and Handling (Objects)

Essential moving and handling information to help minimise the risk of injuries

Back problems account for a third of all worker absence in the UK, which makes it all the more important to ensure that your staff are aware of all the risks and are adequately trained to handle objects safely.

As a result, this programme has been produced to help raise awareness of the key topics and as a result, help to reduce the risk of injury to staff and those who are most at risk of injury due to the tasks they perform.

This online programme therefore covers information pertinent to the following key themes:

  • Health and Safety
  • Moving and handling
  • Injuries, Causes and Effects of injuries
  • Avoiding injuries
  • Legislation
  • Ergonomics and Risk Assessment
  • Principles of Safer handling
  • Team handling
  • Communication and Safer handling

These themes can then be separately supported by Face to Face training (where required) by appropriately qualified individuals which then allows practical elements to also be covered.
