What is Manual Handling

Manual handling is not just an activity that we engage in whilst carrying out daily workplace activities, we still undertake manual handling activities while we rest, play and engage in everyday household activities. Our workplace activities, and the activities we engage in at home, can push us into poor postural positions, which create static loading, shear compression torsional and tension stresses and strains on our spine. Coupled with poor posture, these stresses may damage our vertebrae and intervertebral discs, resulting in pain and restricted movement. Also, our spine is our main protector of our spinal cord, damage to our spinal cord may result in life changing injuries. As an experienced training course provider, we provide informative material specific to your working environment, covering all of the above aspects with the intent to provide you with the skills to manoeuvre objects under the least amount of stress and risk to your body.
