Manual Handling


This Manual Handling course will explain the inherent dangers of moving and handling, but more importantly, it will show you how to perform the tasks with a minimum of risk as possible to keep you safe. There are no prerequisites to enrol on this course, but a health questionnaire will be given upon arrival to the training centre.

We Also offer a HABC Accredited Level 2 Award in Manual Handling (RQF). This qualification is delivered over a full day's training. Please contact us for further info.

From January 2020 we will only be offering this course in the form of a full day Highfield qualification.

This course can also be delivered as a EUSR (Energy & Utility Skills Register) accredited programme where required. If you would like more information, please contact us online or call 01792 585868.
