Manual Handling in Construction

In construction projects, lifting and handling heavy loads is a widespread practice, but so are workplace injuries caused when conducting manual handling work.

The Regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely. Employers have a legal duty to lower the risk of workplace hazards, such as manual handling, to an acceptable level. This includes providing adequate training to employees to ensure they understand the risks and how to protect themselves and others from injury.

This course provides clients with an awareness of the hazard of manual handling as it applies to the construction sector and supports compliance with the relevant manual handling legislation. It looks at the risks involved and key principles for preventing accidents
and ill health.

What People Say

A small selection of kind words.
Started working with Fran four years ago and now she looks after all of our health and safety paperwork and training. She is approachable, down to earth, on top of everything and always on the phone when we need her. John Brophy JNL SCAFFOLDING
Couldn’t recommend Frances highly enough. Very professional service with serious attention to detail. She knows what we need before we do! She looks after all our paperwork, records, training, certification etc. She put a system in place for us and she monitors it and keeps everything and everyone in line! Keith Murphy AVALON CONVEYOR COMPONENTS
Professional service that hasn’t cost me the earth! I call on Fran for updates or method statements or if I am asked for something specific for health and safety. She is always so helpful and practical; she works out solutions on site and puts the paperwork together for me. Even though I only call on her when I need her, she actually feels like one of the lads. Martin Bennett COOLRAIN CONCRETE
I was starting from scratch when I contacted Fran for a Health and Safety Statement. I thought it would be just a one-off need but as I have gotten different jobs, I have needed method statements, or extra training and I have always gone back to Fran. I would build all day long but ask me to do paperwork and I would run a mile! Fran makes it all so easy, there is no fuss, just an easy going get the job done attitude. Mark Fortune KEY CONSTRUCTION
