Our People Moving and Handling training courses are customised to suit your employees’ specific working environment, the Moving and Handling activities they conduct, and the Moving and Handling equipment and apparatus that they use.

Our experts will review your current Moving and Handling Risk Assessments and Moving and Handling Policy, and then develop a specific course to train your employees in the most effective way possible. We have found that this ‘customised’ approach provides your staff with quality training that stays with them.
