3 Hour Manual Handling Awareness Course

Details

This course introduces delegates to the hazards and risks involved in manual handling. It will equip delegates with the ability to develop safer manual handling techniques in the workplace, which will contribute to the reduction of accidents and injuries in the work place, which in turn benefits both employers and employees.
