The introduction to our course covers your back – what it’s made up of, how it works, how flexible and strong it is, but also how fragile it can be if it’s not look after. It explains what damage can be done with poor lifting techniques, and it offers an interesting insight into why children naturally lift objects correctly.

Our Manual Handling Training will go through things you need to consider about the object you are lifting, as part of correct manual handling.

The second section of our Manual Handling Training explains how you can prevent aches, pains and more severe damage by maintaining a healthy back daily. It covers correct (neutral) manual handling postures, working in the Power Zone, and breaking bad postural habits.
