Chapter 01

In module one, we get the ball rolling by defining what we mean by manual handling. We discuss different ways that we may handle items manually in the workplace and what tasks fall into the umbrella of ‘manual handling’. We also take a look at what risks are associated with manual handling. Along with why there’s such a ‘fuss’ about this issue. Finally, we take a look at the surprisingly easy to understand legislation surrounding manual handling and what authorities are in place to help you stay safe in your workplace.

Chapter 02

Module two starts to become more specific, and in this module, the focus of our attention is what types of injuries we might experience as a result of manual handling. We also look at why it’s so important to be able to notice these injuries in yourself or others.

Chapter 03

In this module, which is another focused module, we take a look at risk assessments in depth. The learner will discover the critical role that risk assessments play not just in managing health and safety risks but in managing all risks.

Chapter 04

A big part of risk management is to control and reduce the risks involved, and this is the focus of this module. We learn systems for reducing and controlling risk. What to do in some everyday situations and ways that we may manage the risk such as using Personal Protective Equipment, and practising safe manual handling protocols.

Chapter 05:

In the final module, we take a more in-depth look into many of the techniques used to help the learner to practice manual handling safely. We will focus on each different type of lift you may need to do in the workplace and give you a step by step guide on how to handle that load safely.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
