Leading occupational safety trainers at ORT offer this manual handling course to ensure that you’re in compliance with health and safety regulations and that your employees stay safe and healthy at work. ORT deliver our manual handling courses in Cork City, County Cork and nationwide across Ireland.
Incorrect manual handling of loads is one of the most common causes of injury at work, accounting for nearly one third of all reported accidents. The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations (2007) were introduced to help minimise the risk from manual handling operations. A requirement of these regulations is that employees are suitably informed and capable of performing manual handling operations. This manual handling course covers everything your staff need to know to handle goods in the workplace in a safe and effective manner.
Our fresh approach to employee welfare, in accordance with HSA guidance, is achieved through FETAC instructor standards. This manual handling course is designed to satisfy the training and awareness compliance requirements of relevant legislation and regulations. All successful participants will receive a Manual Handling Guide, along with a Manual Handling Certificate (valid for 3 years).
In addition to our manual handling course, Occupational Resuscitation Training (ORT) are established leaders in the provision of first aid training, fire safety training and health and safety courses throughout Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Waterford.
