Healthcare settings can pose significant moving and handling challenges and risks. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders, including manual handling injuries, are the most common type of occupational ill health in the UK.

Given the nature, type and frequency of moving and handling activities undertaken the risks of injury to staff and patients are considerable and need to be minimised. As part of health and safety at work requirements, employers are expected to provide training on the specific activity of moving and handling.

At the end of this course, learners are required to complete an online assessment. On successful completion of the assessment (80% pass mark), learners may download a Moving & Handling Level 2 certificate from their profile page. Our certificate can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit purposes.
