A message to our Clients from our Director Gareth Milner
Since 2010 we have been working tirelessly to keep the nation BackSafe. Our role now with the COVID pandemic is to support your business in keeping your staff healthy & safe, at the same time as promoting safer Manual Handling habits & practices, to support low manual handling lost time accidents, maintaining your compliance with the Health & Safety Executive's Manual Handling Regulations. Osteopathic Solutions will endeavour to follow & impose strict guidelines when carrying out Practical Manual Handling Courses.
As it has been advised to avoid public transport where possible, our Instructors will arrive on site by car
Our Instructors will abide by all clear guidance given by the establishment including social-distancing with the site contacts on arrival, as well as clearly following any signage or visual aids. We will review entry & exit routes to minimise contact with people.
Our Instructors will wear a mask in enclosed places where social distancing is not possible
As the weather will be milder, our Instructors will carry out the training outdoors (if possible)
Any classroom theory we need to carry out will be done so in a well-ventilated room
Our Instructors will carry disinfectant with them & encourage the use before & after training
Our Instructors will follow cleaning procedures for the parts of shared equipment they & the learners touch after each use, such as classroom laminates & inanimate loads
Until the Government recovery strategy eases, our Instructors will maintain 2 metres of social distancing. If our Instructors are in an area with limited space, we will ensure the groups are halved, as to minimise the number of people in contact with one another
If necessary, our Instructors will use floor tape to mark areas to help learners keep to a 2 metre distance
If you have any questions, or would like to offer us additional safety measures please call me directly at our Head Office on 0845 299 3513
Keep well to all. Life will return to normal soon.

Employee Safe Manual Handling Training in this Year of Pandemic
The effects of COVID‐19 on social distancing will likely apply to much of 2020 across the UK. Therefore bringing together large groups to receive Practical Manual Handling Training will be difficult or even not possible. All businesses under the Health & Safety Act and the Manual Handling Operations Regulations have a legal obligation to provide their employees with Manual Handling Training. Osteopathic Solutions provides the following 3 solutions to this problem.
