RQF Level 2 Award in Manual Handling
Any staff who could be expected to manually reposition loads of any description using bodily force to lift, lower, push, pull or otherwise must be trained to do so in a safe manner. Not only does training encourage the workforce to carry out their tasks without injury but also to think about the load and plan the movement to avoid damage to surroundings and to the load itself.
This course contains theory and practical elements including lifting and the use of mechanical aids. We will attempt to replicate specific tasks typical to your own workplace making the training much more relevant and effective.
On completion of the course and assessment, the delegates will receive the QA Accredited (QCF), nationally recognised Safe Moving and Handling Certificate valid for 3 years. Delegates will also receive a handbook for future reference.
