The SAS guide to manual handling is now available as an online programme, which lasts approximately 38 minutes, plus the time required for the final exam.

A refresher course is also available – this lasts for approx. 24 minutes, plus examination time.
Manual Handling is vital for everyone and a third of all workplace injuries are the result of accidents relating to such activities, so the regulations are in place to protect everyone’s health and wellbeing. The entire course is based around the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, helping you to abide with law and make your workplace environment safer.

The course focuses on how to prevent injuries, giving you and your fellow employees the skills and practical techniques to lift inanimate objects.

Should anyone’s spine or back be damaged, it can have almost irreversible effects. For this reason, we highly recommend this course, not only to abide by legislation, but to also look after the long term productivity, health and wellbeing of your team.
