Many of us move and lift loads in our daily work, often without giving much thought to the potential consequences. Yet, workplace injuries to the back, shoulders and neck are common with millions of working days lost to musculoskeletal disorders every year.

The impact of these injuries can be considerable for employers, but particularly for the individuals involved. While acute injuries may heal quickly, longer-term chronic problems can significantly affect a sufferer’s health, wellbeing and quality of life.

When we lift and move loads during our daily working life, it’s vital that we know how to prevent injury – by actively reducing risks, a better awareness of posture, and using effective manual handling technique.

This elearning module includes a range of learning activities to help you develop your understanding of manual handling.

When you finish the course, you will be asked to demonstrate your understanding by completing a short assessment.

Courses developed by Nimble Elearning have been certified by the CPD Certification Service and count towards your annual CPD requirement.
