Moving and Manual Handling online training courses

Moving and Handling training is essential for all employees. The Virtual College range of modules have been developed in conjunction with subject specialists and are suitable for training employees in all aspects of manual handling, whether it be objects or patients. We also have two NHS moving and handling modules, developed especially for use in the NHS and Care sectors. These cover moving and handling patients and more general moving and handling in the NHS or a care environment.

Manual Handling

Back injury is the main reason for absence from the workplace and one third of all reported injuries that result in three days off work are caused by manual handling accidents. What ever role you are in beit administration, catering, cleaning or domestics, situations may arise when you need to move objects. This module will show you what you need to do to handle objects safely and minimise the risk of injury.
