Manual Handling Training

IPAF Training BoltonThe Manual Handling course we run at Bolton hire and training is designed to comply with the health and safety at work act 1974, and Manual handling regulations 1992.

We would advise that manual handling training within the workplace is a legal requirement and recommend that everybody within the workplace should attend a manual handling training course, statistically over 10 million work days were lost last year due to injuries caused through poor manual handling knowledge , costing employers over £600 million.

The course covers correct lifting techniques and the ability to access risk involved while lifting.
