CIEH Level 2 Award in Manual Handling: Course details

Introduction

Principles of Manual Handling is a stand-alone level 1 qualification, which complements the CIEH Foundation Certificate in Health and Safety programme. It is aimed at those who carry out manual handling activities at work and introduces students to the hazards of manual handling, the risks involved and controls available and what to expect from a manual handling assessment.

Successful completion will prepare students to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of safer methods and tasks, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors. The qualification is not intended

to train students to carry out manual handling assessments nor to provide detailed training on handling techniques.

While this unit of study can be delivered as a stand-alone qualification and there are no specific pre-requisites, it is strongly recommended that students should already hold the CIEH Foundation Certificate in Health and Safety.

Suitable for: all employees that carry out manual handling tasks.
