New Client 'Pilot Offer Day'

For New Clients we offer a reduced rate of £695 (a £100 saving!) for a day of our 'Setting UK Standards' Workforce Manual Handling Training. We have called this a 'Pilot Day' as it is our first encounter with your manual handling tasks, loads, environments and Employees. With that in mind, our Team of Manual Handling Experts have 13 years experience in all UK working environments and have Practically taught Employees of our current Clients your exact tasks. Check out our Programme Customisation below. The 'Pilot Day' trains up to 20 of your Employees in Accredited 3 x 2 Hour 100% Practical Skills Courses. This gives each Employee more time with our Instructor and supports us learn 'ALL' things your Business, setting up a long term Manual Handling Risk Management business relationship.


If your Business has contracted us at another of your UK sites, and your site hasn't, this New Client 'Pilot Offer Day' still applies to your site and you can receive the day of Training at £695, saving your Business £100.

Our onsite, practical, task specific and attendee engaging Courses engrain the message of best practice, safer manual handling techniques and practices, reducing workforce manual handling lost time accidents, injury claims and legal fees, leveraging business growth. Pitched simply to your workforce by our Expert Manual Handling Instructors, being Occupational Osteopaths, our jargon free 3 Hour, 2 Hour and 1 Hour Practical Skills Courses teach your workforce 'BackSafe' lifting, carrying, lowering, pushing, pulling and team handling in your employees' working environments.


Firstly through telephone contact, I speak to you to gain sufficient information on the Company's manual handling tasks, loads and environments. Notes from this conversation are saved on our database. Should it be necessary, emailing photos, video footage and risk assessment reports are useful in us fully understanding your manual handling operations. This information is then discussed with our Instructor the week before the first day of training. Our Expert Manual Handling Instructor has a site tour before the first course commences which usually takes around 30-45 minutes. With this preparation, and our all industry national experience, this enables our Instructor to plan the practical tasks to be covered during the practical content of the Courses, fully bespoke our provision, and maximising reductions in Manual Handling Lost Times Accidents, Injury Claims and Legal Fees.

3 Hour Manual Handling Practical Skills Courses in 2011 for Vita Cellular Foams

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.
