Physiotherapists are ideally placed to deliver and advise employees on manual handling.  Training is normally carried out for one of 2 reasons:

  • An individual returning to work from injury who needs specific advice and education on prevention of injury for their role
  • A group of workers who require manual handling training as part of their job role

Workers can either attend one of our clinics (Burnley, Padiham, Bolton, Lancaster,Barnoldswick or Skipton) or we can visit you at your place of work and provide training in-situ, which is more appropriate for larger groups.

Training takes the form of an interactive and practical workshop, and attendees are provided with a handbook to take away for reference in the future.

A useful guide to manual handling within the workplace can be found here on theHealth and Safety Executive’s website.

Often, manual handling training for injured workers is linked in with providing ergonomic assessments as part of a return to work package for an injured employee.
