Manual Handling

Back injury was the most commonly occurring occupational injury prior to the introduction of mandatory Manual Handling Training for all employees. Since its inclusion as a mandatory course there has been a substantial reduction in the number of such injuries.

3EY provides a manual handling course that meets the mandatory requirements and addresses the specific issues of safely lifting and moving babies, toddlers and children. The course content includes, anatomy, workplace health and safety, law, ergonomics, common manual handling injuries & practical tips for effective manual handling.

This course is currently entirely online due to COVID-19 restrictions. It takes 2.5 hours of online education and a 15 minute practical assessment to complete. A certificate of completion will be sent to all educators who register and complete the course. Email us at to enquire about the next course. This is available for individual bookings or providers who wish to book several places.
