Back injury is the main reason for absence from the workplace, whilst one third of all reported injuries that result in three days off work are caused by manual handling accidents. Whatever role you are in be it administration, catering, cleaning or domestics, situations may arise when you need to move objects. This module will show you what you need to do to handle objects safely and minimise the risk of injury.
This course has been developed to provide you with an introduction to what employers need to do in order to meet their duties under the COSHH Regulations 2002. On completion, learners will have an increased understanding of the positive impact of COSHH, the effects of hazardous substances and the methods to adopt to comply with the regulations.
