Safe Moving and Handling Level 2
This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in manual handling and is ideal for all workplace requirements. The course is designed to meet the requirements and recommendations of the HSE Manual Handling Regulations 1992.
Correct manual handling training will reduce the risk of accidents occurring by identifying and preventing them. Manual handling is not difficult to learn but can save a lot of problems for employers and employees, as well as saving significant costs to the company by way of reduced sick leave and compensation claims.
Our enthusiastic, professional Instructors will make sure that candidates have the knowledge and skills to safely and efficiently perform their role. The training will be tailored as much as possible to their place of work and the risks or scenarios that might be specific to it.
As with all of our courses the Manual Handling of Objects Level 2 course can be run at our dedicated training centre at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre or at your own venue.
The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and comes with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate.
This course comes with 4.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course may be less than this.
