This course has been provided to ensure that persons understand the risk factors involved in manual handling in the office and how to carry out good handling technique, in compliance with The Manual Handling Operations Regulations, 1992 (as amended 2002).

The purpose of the course is to provide understanding and information regarding the areas of manual handling and how this can affect musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which includes:

- Back Pain
- Upper Limb Disorders

The course contains interactive sections to engage the participant and a multiple choice assessment.

This course is centred on the office environment to demonstrate how to comply with legislation but its useful tips and best practices can be transferred to any manual handling situation. This is to reduce your risk of obtaining an injury relating to bad practice.
