Level 2 Award in Manual Handling of Objects OFQUAL (QCF)

Manual Handling is something that we all come into contact with in our day to Day lives and carry on without a second thought, that is until something happens or doesn’t feel right by which time it’s too late. We all have a responsibility to look after ourselves and your employer has a responsibility and legal obligation to look after your well being. 


During BeSure Training’s Manual Handling course we look into the legislation and regulations that both employer and employee must adhere to, and how the risk assessments are utilised to establish the correct Manual Handling techniques to carry out tasks in the workplace.

BeSure Manual Handling Training Mid Sussex

Our approach to Manual Handling Training is very geared to educating learners about how their anatomy works and what’s going on throughout the Manual Handling process. We believe that if we can help people to understand the mechanics behind the actions and relate it to themselves then we give the learner a better understanding and promote self preservation. Including practical demonstration on our courses along with active participation from the learner, it becomes a key element as part of the practical sessions with engaging activities and hands on practical tasks we instruct proper technique and posture when manual handling . Utilizing life size anatomically correct models and hands on simulation training aids we then help the learner to relate to the hazards and common injuries caused from incorrect Manual Handling technique. 

Modern technology as well as legislation means that many tasks today do not need the use of brute force and physical strength. BeSure Training helps you to recognize these ways to avoid potential injury and harm by recognising the approach best suited to the task and identifying the tools to use, also identifying tools that maybe required to be sure that the job is carried out successfully and safely.
