Moving and handling related injuries cause over a third of all workplace injuries.  Unsafe techniques can cause staff and the people they support a lot of harm.  The NNTC manual handling syllabus covers both moving and handling of objects and the moving and handling of people. We also offer a combined course.

All of our moving and handling courses are run in an interactive student-centred style, with all assurances given to create a safe learning environment. Please note all our courses are tailored free of charge to your requirements so may vary slightly from the stated aims and outcomes and are run in-house and virtually.

NNTC can create a bespoke E-Learning package for your organisation. This means no more paying for individual licenses for all your employees. Please contact Jackie for details and pricing.
