Course Aim

The aim of this manual handling course is to help you identify areas within your operations in which manual handling could present an occupational health risk at operative level. We would also like for you to understand some of the long term impacts manual handling injuries could present within the childcare industry and what you can do to best manage such risks at your workplace

Why Childcare Professionals Should Do A Manual Handling Course?

In early childhood education and care settings, injuries can often come from tasks like lifting children, moving heavy objects, and a lot of bending, twisting or reaching. According to one estimate, a childcare worker can bend two hundred times through the work shift and some can potentially lift a combined thousands of kilograms each day. 

Our manual handling course online helps avoid injury, staff time off and can teach teams to work together. Childcare professionals will learn to evaluate and assess the risks associated with their specific workplace, which will vary depending on the specific setting. The aspects of manual handling that will be touched upon in the three following modules: 

Module 1: Manual Handling and Associated Risks

Module 2: Performing a Workplace Risk Assessment

Module 3: Applying Safe Manual Handling techniques
