Safe Team’s manual handling training course gives your staff the required knowledge and skills to correctly carry out manual handling techniques, and protects your business from risk and costly claims.

It’s estimated that one in three accidents in the workplace are related to manual handling.

Safe Team’s Paul McLaughlin says the financial and reputational damage from a workplace accident or injury can have “disastrous consequences” for businesses.

“Manual handling is defined as any transporting or supporting of a load (including the lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving thereof) by hand or bodily force, “ Paul explains.

He adds: “Organisations that invest in their employees through training, not only give employees the skills to ensure they are competent to carry out tasks safely but see a reduction in lost time due to workplace injuries and incidents.”

It will take place at the Safe Team offices at The Innovation Centre, Catalyst, Derry-Londonderry on March 3, running from 9am until 1pm.
