Manual Handling and Intro to Health and Safety (One day CPD Course)

This course forms part of the ABTT Bronze Award but may be taken as a one off’ stand alone course. The course can be undertaken in any clean space and allows trained candidates to teach simple manual handling techniques to on-going casual staff.

What does the course cover?

It has been estimated that more than one-third of all workplace accidents are caused by manual handling activities. The risks of manual handling include musculoskeletal injuries and injuries caused by the handler falling. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 impose a duty on employers to avoid the risk of injury to employees through instruction and induction.

This course directly relates to theatres, stage technicians and workshop staff and discusses the TMA / BECTU guidance on the Code of Conduct for Fit-ups and Get-Outs. This is City and Guilds accredited course. Participating candidates will receive an ABTT CPD certificate.

How much does the course cost?

ABTT Members: £180 + VAT
Non-ABTT Members: £285 + VAT

Practical exercises were a perfect way to demonstrate (i.e.) the simplicity of carrying out an ad-hoc manual handling assessment – this is especially relevant for local authority venues where a slight overkill on recording tasks/risks is expected.
