Course Description

This Manual Handling Training Course, provides best practice training to staff engaged in the manual handling of loads under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005, Chapter 4.

The definition of manual handling in Regulation 68 refers to activities where the
characteristics of the load pose a risk and the ergonomic conditions of the activity
are unfavourable. Regulation 69(c) requires that a risk assessment be carried out on
all work tasks which involve manual handling activity. The risk assessment process
should ensure that these activities are assessed to identify risk factors and to decide
on appropriate control measures, including both engineering and organisational, to
avoid or reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury. This assessment should critically
review manual handling operations.

Carnew Training & Consultancy delivers manual handling training using a QQI Accredited Manual Handling Instructor.
Upon completion of the course, the candidate will obtain a certificate of completion which will be valid for 3 years.
