What is Manual Handling and Moving & Handling?
Over 300,000 people each year suffer a work related injury solely due to poor manual handling practices. It accounts for around a third of all work place injuries in the UK each year. However, the damaged caused is not nearly as significant as the result of poor moving and handling practices.
Both manual and moving and handling processes are essential to ensure the safety of your staff and the people they support. This is why we have carefully blended the two subjects into one course. Helping your staff understand and carryout safe practices on both topics.

Training with the Leicestershire Training Team
Training is one of the most important aspects of anyone's working life, however it is commonly a source of boredom, resulting in a poor retainment of information. This is why we started thinking about training differently. For us, the training needs to be engaging as well as informative, so what you learn today, will be remembered tomorrow.
Training with us is a unique experience, with a potent mixture of fun, interactivity, real life experience and expert advice. We only use trained professionals, such as our nurse trainers, to deliver our training. This way you are taught by someone with real hands on experience.
