Manual Handling Training Course
At Winter & Company we believe that Manual Handling training should be an interactive, uninhibited experience, allowing free thought, discussion and learning.
Our objective is to encourage and develop our training delegates confidence, ability and understanding in matters of Manual Handling, in order to safely undertake Manual Handling activities at work.
By adopting this strategy we have earned an enviable reputation as Professional Health & Safety Trainers.
The practice is headed and managed by Mitchell Winter, TechIOSH. (Technician member of The Institution of Occupational Safety & Health).
To provide you the delegate with a clear understanding of your legal responsibilities, Manual Handling hazards and suitable Handling techniques, thereby allowing you to approach and deal with Manual handling activities with confidence and ease.
