Safe Use of Hoists
As a part of our manual handling training programme we offer specific training on the safe use of manual handling equipment, in particular hoisting systems.
All staff should have a good understanding of the equipment, its uses, abuses and risks attached to its use. It is good to learn these techniques in the safe controlled environment of the training room.
Candidates are assessed on both retained knowledge and practical application, and are required to meet a set standard in order for a certificate to be issued.
