Description: Lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling of loads can cause a range of injuries – from back problems to other musculo-skeletal disorders. Training to lift and carry correctly forms an important part of reducing manual handling risks. This course is intended to give a very practical understanding of the risks involved and control measures required for lifting and carrying activities.
It is ideal for anyone who is likely to lift or carry as part of their daily role but is useful to everyone for work and daily life.
NB: Camera staff should book the ‘Safe Manual Handling Techniques for Camera & Sound Operators’ course.
