RGF provides manual handling training from our Head Office at Garretts Green in Birmingham, West Midlands
RGF Logistics Limited offers in-house training services from our Head Office based at Garretts Green in Birmingham. Our trainer is fully experienced and qualified in providing structured training covering all aspects of safe manual handling.
Whether you are a driver or work in a dedicated logistics warehouse, instruction on the safe handling of goods is very important for two primary reasons - the safety of the operative and the safe handling of the goods themselves. Improper manual handling of goods can easily cause injury if not done properly - back and neck injury is common as well as trap injuries especially with goods which are too heavy to properly lift.
- Employer/Employee Statutory Obligations
- The correct procedures for moving objects with bodily force
- The basic principles of human kinetics
- The best practice for lifting and handling techniques
- Courses can be structured to your business needs
Remember that it is not just the safety of the operative that is in question. Bad manual handling costs companies millions of pounds per annum in damaged goods and breakages. This alone can affect your reputation with a customer and have a negative impact on your business. By keeping damages and waste to an absolute minimum, this can only strengthen your relationship with your customers. And by keeping your employees safe, this will reduce unnecessary injury and improve employee absences.
