Course Overview:

Material handling is one of the principal causes of work-related injuries. Each year thousands of injuries are attributed to improper lifting and carrying of heavy objects. Nearly all companies need to move and store materials. Therefore, depending on the type of materials and the mode of movement, there can be many hazards posed. Poor, improper, or unsafe handling of materials causes injuries and even death in many cases. Handling materials safely should be the primary goal of every employee.

Therefore, Training Express introduces its Materials Handling Safety Interactive Training course for you. This course is devised to help the apprentices to recognize the potential hazards related to lifting, to move, stacking, and storing materials and determine how to minimize the dangers associated with materials handling.

Upon completion, you’ll know all the nooks and crannies of the concerned field. Eventually, you’ll learn the hazards that employees are likely to face and explain the work practices and tools they can use to control or eliminate these hazards. Moreover, you’ll also get a clear concept of its importance and purpose.

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.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

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.
