Moving and Handling
The course deals with prevention of injuries to the spine, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, associated with physical stress when handling loads. Procedures which identify and assess moving and handling risks in the workplace are also followed. The course enables the candidate to understand and comply with legal responsibilities of both the employee and employer. The promotion of safe practice is followed by learning to use the correct moving and handling techniques and utilising devices/equipment.
