Moving and Handling Principles

Delivering training courses in Health & Social Care, First Aid, Moving & Handling, Fire Safety and Food Safety.

At TH Training Solutions, we are specialists in providing high quality moving and handling training to health and social care provider businesses. All our specialist training is delivered face to face at your business by fully qualified trainers.

This course is ideal for everybody, whether you are an office worker, a warehouse operative, a domestic, kitchen staff member or an administrator – we’ve got it covered!

If you employ staff, you have a legal duty to provide moving and handling training, so this course is vital. If your work only involves the possibility of moving objects (and not specifically assisting people with mobility needs or equipment), this particular course is designed for you.

Having a knowledge of safe moving and handling practices can help you stay healthy and safe in work. Employers must consider the physical pressures placed on staff in the workplace, by ensuring they understand and practise safe moving and handling methods.

Our trainers are fully qualified and have years of experience in people moving and handling in a wide range of business sectors. TH Training Solutions are the ideal choice for training, as we use real life experiences to provide delegates with engaging and relevant training courses.
