Blended Manual Handling Training

Completing the theory section online followed by an instructor-led practical lifting session

Blended manual handling – the best of both online and face-to-face training for manual handling is now possible. EazySAFE’s instructor-led training experts and online training specialists have come together to develop a blended manual handling package with a view to saving time and money for our clients.

Blended manual handling training allows:

  • Employees to complete the theory section of the course online at a time that suits them.
  • This is followed by a group face-to-face practical lifting session with a manual handling instructor.

This is a cost effective and time efficient method of completing manual handling training and keeping your company compliant with health and safety legislation.

Contact us and find out about our proven techniques.

Elements of the manual handling training online course

The manual handling training online course teaches employees:

  • The definition of manual handling
  • How to carry out a TILE risk assessment
  • How to prevent back injury in the workplace
  • The 8 principles of safe lifting
  • The anatomy of the back
  • Finally, the importance of ergonomics in the workplace

Once an employee has completed the online course and successfully passed the quiz at the end, they are ready to undertake their practical assessment. Full certification is achieved upon successful completion of both the online and practical session. This practical assessment is the only classroom or face-to-face part of a blended course. Each employee will only need a few minutes to complete this section.


Elements of the instructor-led practical lifting session

The employee must successfully demonstrate the following lifts to be certified:

  • Floor to table/bench
  • Table/bench to floor
  • To a height
  • From a height
  • Team lift and also
  • Push/pull

The assessor may also ask questions based on the theory covered in the online course. To ensure that learners are familiar with the principles of good manual handling practice.

"EazySAFE [incorporating Phoenix Safety] have provided excellent training material for our company, both in terms of e-learning content and practical training. The employees have found the training materials both useful from a learning point of view and efficient from a time point of view. The support from the team made available to myself has been brilliant also. I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future and would recommend them to anyone!"
