Lantra Safe Lifting Techniques (with problem-solving) 


Course Information

Lift items confidently without the risk of injury with our Safe Lifting Techniques course.

If you lift items once or repeatedly, using an incorrect technique could cause you injury. It’s important to master the correct way to lift so you minimise the risk of injury. Our course will give you the basics of correct lifting and also look at some practical problem solving when performing these tasks.

Our course covers lifting tasks, practical lifting, anatomy and physiology, and practical problem solving and lifting aims. It’s a one-day training only course, with theory and practice. You’ll get a certificate when you have completed the course.

If you’re involved with lots of manual activity in different environments and locations, then our course is suitable for you. Our course will also help you if you are looking at your manual handling risk assessments in your workplace.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

State the principles of correct lifting techniques to minimise the risk of injuries.

List the parts of your body that are at risk of injury due to poor handling techniques and understand muscle and disc injuries and how they occur.

Lift carry and lower loads within your ‘personal capacity’ in such a way as to minimise the risk of injury and the efforts required.

Observe improvement in your manual handling skills.
