Manual Handling Training Course Service

Manual handling is an everyday task in most workplaces, whether you work in the office, or farm, stack shelves in a shop or a warehouse, or are employed on a building site. Goods whether they be boxed cartooned, loose or rolled along with tools, materials and all sorts of equipment, need to be moved, lifted, pushed, pulled and carried throughout the day.

Because we lift, push, pull carry and move things every day, we may not be aware that manual handling is a high-risk activity, and in Ireland, manual handling injuries are actually one of the most common causes of workplace injuries.

Having your staff trained in safe manual handling techniques can therefore mean the difference between a valuable day at work or an expensive one - being faced with a staff member off work with a bad back and a potential claim on your hands!

Andrew Doyle Safety Consultants Limited (ADSC) provides manual handling training for small, medium and large businesses and organisations, having been in the business of safety in the workplace for the past 10 years.

We offer our tailored services using only health and safety specialists, thereby ensuring the highest levels of professionalism and affordability.
