Why Is Manual Handling Training Crucial?

Manual handling, or the process of transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force, is a fundamental activity in numerous workplaces. From lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, to carrying, manual handling is ubiquitous and inevitable. However, improper manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work. It can lead to acute injuries, like cuts or fractures, as well as cumulative damage, such as musculoskeletal disorders.


This is where CR Training steps in. We offer comprehensive training designed to reduce the risk of these injuries, promote health and safety, and enhance productivity in your operations.
