Manual Handling Operatives

Back problems are one of the biggest causes of employee absence in Ireland.

According to statistics, 80% of our population will suffer from back problems sometime during their lifetime. Safety First Consultancy has a Manual Handling Course which trains employees to lift and carry objects safely. By doing so as a company, you can reduce your company’s long term costs but minimizing days off due to back pain.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 2005 and The Manual Handling Regulations place a duty on every employer to reduce the potential injury from manual handling operations.

This course is designed to meet those standards and to prevent further injuries.
