Manual Handling Train the Trainer Courses
Manual handling train the trainer courses for new and established instructors, either at you own site or online.
CV-19 update: We are currently offering live and interactive online ‘Key Instructor in Manual Handling‘ courses.
You can join from work or home and will need access to the internet, a webcam, a microphone (although you can join the audio by telephone if you do not have access to a microphone) and space to perform some manual handling techniques under the observation of our trainer.
Our online training is just like our in-person training; courses are conducted by our experienced instructors for the same duration, with the same learning outcomes.
Our training courses are different – We don’t subscribe to the ‘one size fits all’ school of thought!
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 reviewing your existing Manual Handling Policy and Risk Assessments. This allows us to develop a bespoke programme to train your Manual Handling Instructors in the most effective way possible.
We’ve been doing this for over 30 years now. Experience has taught us that this method of providing customised Manual Handling Training at your site, combined with the clinical expertise that our expert instructors bring (all of which are qualified physiotherapists or osteopaths too), results in highly relevant training content, making our courses the most effective at reducing injuries.
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.
