manualhandlingManual handling is one of the main causes of 90% of sick days in Ireland. In many cases, poor lifting techniques and lack of basic manual handling training results in back problems.

If your staff are employed in a position which requires them to lift and move heavy loads, this is a simple but important course which could save your company or employees numerous days off thereby increasing productivity.

Employees in the workforce take on average 4 days off due to back problems on a single sick certificate. Is this something that you or your company can afford?

This simple half day course teaches you and your employees methods of reducing the risk of back injuries in the workplace.

The manual handling course syllabus consists of the following topics:

  • Legislation governing Manual Handling
  • Duties of employers and employees
  • Identifying the load
  • Anatomy of the spine
  • Principles of good movement and kinetic lifting
  • Types and typical causes of injuries
  • Practical applications of lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying

Once this course is completed, the student will receive a manual handling certificate which is valid for 3 years from Siren Training.
