People Moving & Handling Risk Assessment

Our People Moving & Handling Risk Assessments form the bedrock of your organisation’s injury risk management strategy.

What makes OFI’s Risk Assessment services different?

Our People Moving & Handling Risk Assessment training and consultancy services are customised to suit your organisation’s specific working environment, and the Manual Handling activities that you conduct.

Our experts first review your current Moving & Handling Risk Assessments and Manual Handling Policy, and then develop a specific course to train your colleagues in the most effective way possible.

This method of providing customised Moving and Handling Training at your site, combined with the clinical expertise that underpins the training content, make our courses the most effective at reducing injuries.

Our training portfolio includes a range of Moving & Handling Risk Assessment services, and we can tailor the duration and content to meet your exact requirements.

When we were looking for a company that provided a manual handling specific Risk Assessor course, we approached Osteopaths for Industry and found their approach to be very refreshing. They came along and studied what hazards and potential risks were present in our industry, then tailored their training programme to fit.
