What is manual handling?


The definition of manual handling is "the transporting and/or supporting of a load using bodily force". This encompasses lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, carrying, dropping and throwing.

It's not just how to pick up a box!









We have developed a 3 hour course that suits the needs of most organisations.

  • A PowerPoint presentation
  • A theory test to check understanding
  • Practical training of a kinetic lift
  • Practical skills test
  • A short DVD


This training can be conducted on your premises or in our Wellingborough training centre.

Before we undertake training it may be advisable for us to visit the site and observe the types of manual handling that are taking place in order that our training is as relevant to your workplace as possible.

Other courses can be developed specifically to meet your individual requirements.


All manual handling training is performed by either our RoSPA trained and qualified Manual Handling Instructor/Risk Assessor or City & Guilds Manual Handling Instructor.
