Do I need manual handling training?
The HSE states that employers should identify what is needed to reduce the risk from manual handling including appropriate techniques and training.
When should training be delivered?
Training should be delivered to ‘New Starters’ and at regular refresher intervals.
What constitutes training?
Training can take many forms e.g. practical face-to-face, online, guides, or DVD / Video but without a ‘test of understanding’ it is unlikely to be accepted as training in the eyes of the law.
Does the course include a test?
Accompanying the DVD is a CD containing question and answer sheets. It is wise to set an arbitrary pass-mark (16 out of 20 / 80% recommended).
How soon will the DVD arrive?
All purchases made before 1pm will be despatched the same day via Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded delivery.
Can I get a DVD delivered outside the UK?
No – The DVD is based upon UK regulations and is therefore not available for delivery outside the UK.
