Here at Ashford we place a very high importance on the well-being of our employees. It is therefore, important to us that when considering manual handling we provide the right balance of information and practical sessions to keep musculo-skeletal risks to people as low as we can.
Osteopathic Solutions provided exactly what we needed in that they were passionate when delivering the courses and flexible enough to cover our shift system, for example attending our night shift. The classroom sessions were lively and interactive and OS also created a competency test for us so that we could check that our employees had understood the course. The trainer was happy to go into the factory for the practical sessions to utilise the employees 'real' handling requirements and made sure that every person understood the correct techniques for the tasks that they undertake. I would be happy to use Osteopathic Solutions for future training.

We commissioned Manual Handling Train the Trainer programmes for our Play Scheme Leaders and Street Scene Supervisors. This has provided an excellent foundation for them to provide on-site bespoke training to their teams and to undertake manual handling risk assessments within their work areas. Osteopathic Solutions liaised beforehand to ensure that the programmes met our needs, and provided post-training feedback that will enable these new trainers to be supported in their role. I have since recommended this training to another local authority.

Due to dissatisfaction with the majority of manual handling training currently on offer, a different approach was looked for, which would be more informative, interactive, useful and enjoyable than previous/ historical training courses. Hence Osteopathic Solutions were identified to deliver manual handling training in our industrial conversion businesses of Vitec and Custom Foams.
The training was delivered in a professional, informative and enjoyable way, using both practical and theoretical methods, and feedback from our staff at both sites was that the training given was better than any previous training they had received, and through the interaction side, more enjoyable also. Gareth and the team delivered quality, enjoyable and cost effective training for us, and are in our plans to fulfill future requirements.

The Bespoke DVD was a great success. The overall opinion was that as the Bespoke DVD covered specific tasks within our own production facility, and featured our people doing the tasks, it was therefore more relevant by association.
I think the DVD will become a very useful training tool for its intended induction purpose and also as a refresher tool.
