BACKGROUND

Current Irish legislation requires that all employees receive manual handling training every 3 years - provided by a competent and qualified manual handling instructor. The 2005 act specifically states that employees should be trained prior to being exposed to risk; therefore they should receive proper instruction prior to entering the workplace.

The most cost effective way to provide this training on an ongoing basis for many companies is to have an internal manual handling instructor within their workforce. This allows staff to be trained as required rather than waiting for external courses to be come available - and this delay is placing the organization at risk of litigation and staff at risk of injury while they are waiting to attend the course.

ABS runs intensive and highly interactive five-day course during which participants are trained in instructional skills techniques as well as the theoretical and practical aspects of manual handling. The course programme includes modules on legislation and outlines the legal requirements for organisations requiring their own in-house instructor.
