About this course

Manual handling covers a wide range of workplace activities and repetitive tasks. Many jobs involve some form of manual handling, but not all manual handling is hazardous or involves the risk of an injury.

Every organisation has responsibilities regarding the correct manual handling procedures, to prevent injury (including MSD) in the workplace. Training in this area teaches staff how to prevent injuries as a result of repetitive tasks and how to identify signs of injury.

Safetrac’s ‘Manual Handling’ training course, tailored for New Zealand, is designed to assist you in understanding what kind of manual handling is hazardous, how to prevent injury, and the responsibilities of both employers and employees in reducing the risk of injury.
