About the Course

In every industry, workers are exposed to day to day activities which involve some kind of manual handling tasks.


Hazardous manual tasks put employees at increased risk of musculoskeletal disorders. These tasks are the most common workplace injuries across Australia.


The first step in managing risks from carrying out manual tasks is to provide training, information and instruction.

Our courses ensure workers can identify, assess and implement control measures to minimise the risks and undertake these tasks safely.

Industry focused course - can be tailored to meet the requirements of your industry, such as mining or construction. The course focuses on SMART lifting, field ergonomics and job safety analysis.

Health worker focused course - delivered by health care professionals using fully equipped training rooms. This course focuses on safe patient handling practices both in a residential facility and in the community. The training has a strong practical component using slide sheets, wheelchairs and hoists.
