Back injury is still the number one cause of time off work through injury and long
term illness related to this avoidable problem. This course offers an introduction to
the required manual handling operations regulations and is aimed at back awareness
for staff reducing injury and decreasing such absence within the workforce.

We again offer flexibility within the course structure and can tailor the content to suit
your organisations particular needs and staffing requirements. Each student will be
awarded an A4 certificate of competency. These certificates are valid for a period of
three years.
