'' I have 12 years of experience as an Osteopath and 7 years delivering Manual Handling training for Osteopathic Solutions in a range of industries including Council Refuse Depots, Food Factories and Fire and Rescue Services.

I enjoy passing my knowledge and experience gained over the many years of teaching Manual Handling Instructor level Courses onto course attendees. I also enjoy receiving positive feedback afterwards, knowing that they have enjoyed their training days with me and are feeling well educated in the subject of Manual Handling. ''



The course was excellent

We commissioned 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.

We used Osteopathic Solutions for our Manual Handling Instructor Assessor training. 


I attended the training myself and it was first rate. 


Bob Hartwell, HSE Manager at Thompson Valves


The Manual Handling training we had for our Engineering team and Drivers at our depot was excellent. Paul Henaghan is very good at delivering the training and the real life scenarios we managed to set up including luggage handling, using real luggage with accurate weights etc. was a really useful exercise.

Ben Bartram, Private Hire & Schools Co-Ordinator at Southern Vectis (Part of Go South Coast) 


I attended 2 sessions and I could see that attendees were really engaged and Paul Henaghan had a very good approach to those difficult ones, and was brilliant with challenging unsafe practices and was giving comprehensive answers.

Katie Zakaszewska, Safety Coordinator at Dorset Foods, Shaftesbury


Really enjoyed the course, the content and the manner in which it was delivered by Paul Henaghan. I feel very confident about being able to deliver training in house with this knowledge (and some practise).

' The course overall was very interesting with a good balance of practical and theory. Paul the trainer got to know the needs of our service so could deliver the course at our level. 


The training was very good. Paul was really knowledgeable and created a welcoming and engaging atmosphere. The practical activities made the session most useful because it gave individuals a chance to practice what Paul had advised. There was also a good balance of theory vs. practical.
