Online Manual Handling Training Programme

With our easy-to-use video based e-Learning LMS platform, it's simple & cost effective to get your workplace Health & Safety and HR Compliance Manual Handling Training sorted

At Osteopathic Solutions we believe that Manual Handling training should be delivered as a Practical Skills Course for your workforce (whether by your In House Instructors or through Experts like us) especially to those who are doing regular, and possibly hazardous manual handling tasks. 


Online Training Programmes have their role in 21st century training and development plans and our unique Online Manual Handling Training Programme can quickly provide compliance under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations, providing informative, engaging and effective training to support reductions in manual handling lost time accidents.

This Online Course teaches you all you need to know about best practice manual handling of inanimate loads. Being competent in safe manual handling techniques and practices for the workplace is a legal requirement, and this online Manual Handling Course provides everything you need to know about 'BackSafe' practical application of lifting, carrying, lowering, pushing, pulling and team handling technique and practice, including individual manual handling risk assessment based upon the HSE's ‘TILE’ (or LITE’) format.

The HSE does not publish prescriptive guidance on what a ‘good’ manual handling training course should include or how long it should last. However, in general, courses should be suitable for the individual, tasks and environment involved, use relevant examples, relate to what workers actually do and last long enough to cover all the relevant information. Such information is likely to include advice on:

  • Manual handling risk factors and how injuries can occur

  • How to carry out safe manual handling, including good handling technique

  • Appropriate systems of work for the individual’s task and environment

  • Safe use of lifting and handling aids

  • Practical work to allow the trainer to identify and put right anything the trainee is not doing safely

You should establish a planned training programme to make sure all staff identified as requiring it receive basic training, as well as updates when necessary. This should also cover new starters to ensure training takes place either before or as close to starting a new job as possible. You could also monitor sickness absence and near-miss reporting as one way to assess how effective the training has been. Keeping records to show, for example, who has been trained, when the training was carried out and what the content of the course was, will help you manage your training programme and identify when refresher training might be needed.
