Manual handling regulations are in place to safeguard the health and safety of workers, and it's vital that employers undertake manual handling training to educate themselves about their responsibilities.
Health and Safety Executive data shows that failure to follow recommended manual handling techniques is one of the main factors behind musculoskeletal disorders among UK workers. Some 159,000 new cases of these conditions were recorded in 2016-17 alone.
Personal safety for lone workers is of prime importance. Every day in the UK, thousands of workers will be exposed to situations in which their safety could be put at risk when they are left alone with customers or other members of the public.

Both courses are accredited by CPD. The certificates, awarded upon successful completion, can be used to log your hours against.
Both courses usually take between 1-2 hours each to complete, depending on the speed of learning. Learners do not have to complete all the training in one session as progress is recorded throughout and the training can be paused and resumed in our learning management system at any time.
This course bundle is aimed at anyone working in a role that requires working off-site or unsupervised.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
Test and certificate
Each end of course test consists of 15 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark, and, if necessary, may attempt the test three times at no extra cost.
If learners do not achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.
Learners will be able to download a digital certificate on completion of each course. This can be printed, and we suggest you keep it for your records.
