Course benefits:

The training will cover all aspects of correct & safe people handling including lifting aids and hoists.


Additional information:

This course is delivered over three contact hours but can be extended to a full day duration where the staff group is large and hence the assessment period required is longer or for staff groups where in-house experience is particularly limited. Practical instruction will be possible when the training is delivered on-site, allowing use of the actual equipment that the delegates will be working with.
