Manual handling training for new and established instructors – delivered at your own site, at one of our public venues, or online.
Manual Handling training for Instructors
When you book a Manual Handling Instructor training course with OFI, you can be sure that we’ll take the time to get to know your organisation, to understand how you do things, and to create a profile of your employees and the manual handling activities that they conduct.
We consider your specific working environment and the manual handling equipment that you have available, as well as review your existing Manual Handling and Risk Assessment polices. This allows us to develop a bespoke programme to train your Manual Handling Instructors in the most effective way possible.
We don’t just want to train effective manual handling instructors for you, we also want to promote a positive cultural change towards health & safety within your organisation. Our training courses provide you with the knowledge and the tools to facilitate these changes and inspire your employees.
Our training portfolio includes a range of Manual Handling Instructor courses, including practical skills and risk assessment. Below are our most popular Instructor courses, but we can tailor the duration and content of courses to meet your exact requirements.
Your trainers will be fully supported throughout their certification period with the following free services:
Expert Help & Advice
Your colleagues have quick access to our experts for advice on any Manual Handling issues they may have. We ensure that queries are answered within a maximum of 24 hours. Queries are submitted by email initially and one of our experts will call back to discuss the issue and help to resolve the problem.
Detailed Course Notes
Our Course Notes provide you with a detailed resource to reference at any time after the course. We are able to fully customise these to bring them in line with your corporate branding, including logos and pictures from your work sites, and to alter the content of the course notes to suit your working practices, processes and equipment in use.
Health & Safety Executive Material
We also provide several relevant documents from the HSE relating to Manual Handling, such as the MAC Tool and information on Manual Handling Aids.
