Manual Handling Training is a legal requirement in Ireland. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, (General Application) Regulations 2007 all appropriate staff members must be given regular training in safe Manual Handling techniques. At Safeco, we provide solutions for employers who need to comply with the regulation and deliver practical courses to their staff.
Our courses are designed to provide employees with the skills and knowledge necessary to minimise the risk of injury while conducting Manual Handling. In addition, we make participates aware of the consequences of lifting incorrectly.
