Who is People Moving and Handling training for?

Employers have a legal obligation to protect the health and safety of their workforce.

This obligation requires an employer to provide their employees with suitable training in relation to the tasks that they are required to undertake, whether this involves handling people or objects.

Why is Moving and Handling training important?

Manual Handling injuries can have serious implications for both an employer and the person who has been injured.

Employers may have to bear substantial costs, through lost production, sickness absence, overtime & retraining to cover for the absent person, and potentially compensation payments. The injured person may find that their ability to do their job is affected and there may be an impact on their lifestyle, leisure activities, ability to sleep and future job prospects.

Suitable Moving and Handling training is likely to reduce the likelihood of manual handling injuries occurring, reduce the frequency that they occur, and reduce their severity.
