Manual Handling (Polish Sub titles)

Manual Handling (Polish Subtitles)

ETD’s manual handling training will show you how to lift and manage loads safely. 

Workers suffer from manual handling injuries every day, usually because they have lifted or supported loads incorrectly. There are manual handling regulations in place to combat injuries that result from lifting, pushing, pulling or otherwise moving people or items. 

The regulations lay out duties for both organisations and employees, giving general guidelines and requirements to minimise risk. But lots of people aren’t familiar with these regulations and don’t know how to protect themselves. This course will introduce you to these regulations and the steps you can take to protect yourself while lifting or moving loads. If you work in an office, warehouse, factory or hospital – or even on a farm or building site – you’ll find this training invaluable.
