Manual handling training

Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, (General Application) Regulations 2007, employers are mandated by law to provide manual handling training to their staff. This is to minimise workplace injuries associated with handling or lifting objects. 

iSafe’s Manual Handling course adheres to the standards set by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), covering all topics in the “Guide on the Manual Handling Training System – 2010”.

This course teaches employees the proper techniques for lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying heavy loads. It arms them with the knowledge and skills they need to perform manual handling tasks the right way in order to minimise or eliminate injuries.

In accordance with the training guidance set by the HSA, this programme is handled by a QQI Level 6 Manual Handling instructor.

My experience in working with iSafe was very much a positive one. Their professionalism was refreshing and I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again. They excel in finding the right systems of work that reduce our risks to an acceptable level . They also value the customer’s relationship with their clients, and that is reflected in the professionalism of their interactions. The bottom line is that they make the management of health and safety for our business a much more compliant and efficient one.
