Being competent in safe Manual Handling is a legal requirement for your workplace, and this course provides everything you need to know - specifically addressing the task of moving and lifting tyres.
This course introduces the importance of safe manual handling in the workplace; essentially, this means the task of moving, lifting and transporting potentially heavy objects. It covers safe techniques for moving and lifting (including LITE), as well as looking at the anatomy of your back - helping you understand why it is so important to adopt best practice for lifting heavy or awkwardly shaped objects.
This course is an extended version of our best-selling Manual Handling programme, and is particularly suited to those working around tyres; whether mechanics, tyre manufacturers or fleet managers.

Manual Handling including Tyres Course Contents
1. You and Your Back
In this section we look at how our backs work and how poor Manual Handling technique can cause and contribute to illness and injury.
LITE stands for Load, Individual, Task, Environment. These four things are all important whenever you prepare to lift or move a load. You must assess the potential problems before you start!
3. Manual Handling
This section contains step-by-step guides to safe lifting, including lifting from the floor, lifting from waist height, team lifts and pushing and pulling.
4. Moving and Lifting TYRES
This is the specialised section, specifically added to cover lifting and moving tyres. It includes small tyres, large tyres and tractor tyres, 2-man lifts and team lifts.
This is the final slide before the test. It summarises the training and emphasises that it doesn't matter where you lift - it could be at work, it could be while you're out somewhere, it could be while you're at home - but wherever you are you need to put proper lifting techniques into practice, or you risk seriously damaging your back!
