Manual Handling Training
The Practical Biomechanics behind BackSafe Manual Handling Best Practice
Our team of Occupational Osteopaths teach the only way the human body should be used to lift, carry, lower, push, pull and team handle loads. Many Health and Safety training providers teach very flawed technique, especially for squat lifting and lowering. Our technical experts use their clinical biomechanics knowledge gained from their BSc Hons degrees in Osteopathy (and preeminent texts including Joint Structure and Function by Levangie and Norkin pictured to the right) to teach the safest and biomechanically sound techniques.
