Manual Handling Training Course for Businesses in Brisbane

Manual handling is an area of training that should not be taken lightly. Given the serious consequences that can occur as a result of employees not following the safest procedures, it makes sense to spend both time and money educating your staff by hiring in external experts.

At Corporate Work Health Australia, our manual handling training programs for your Brisbane * business are customised to work for your company and the work that is involved in them.

Training in Brisbane from Healthcare Experts

There are many great reasons to choose Corporate Work Health Australia, but one of the key details is that we are made up of a professional body. The company was founded by physiotherapist Wade Brennan and osteopath Heath Williams. Together, with a team made up of other physiotherapists, osteopaths, and many more healthcare workers, we can provide you with a comprehensive solution to the health in your workplace.

As healthcare professionals, we can advise you with complete confidence in the best practice for your workplace, ensuring the safety and health of all your workers. Manual handling, when done incorrectly, can lead to a whole host of musculoskeletal complaints, including the back, joint, and limbs. By taking the right manual handling course in Brisbane *, we can reduce this risk, which not only increases your productivity but also lessens the risk of absenteeism.

Corporate Work Health Australia’s bespoke training is so successful because we create a package that is entirely based around your business and industry. For this very reason, we come and complete your manual handling course at your Brisbane * site. This allows us to deliver practical education and workers can practise their manual handling under supervision. By doing so, the training becomes a lot more ‘real’, rather than being something that has been learned in a classroom-like setting that bears no resemblance to the reality of their job.

At times, bad habits may form part of our daily practice, and it could result in machines being operated in a way that puts a worker’s health at risk or someone may simply have become accustomed to lifting badly. As your company grows, this will, in turn, increase your workforce. Therefore, both new employees and existing members can benefit from exceptional training by our team.

By regularly assessing your manual handling, you can ensure that your workers are completing their jobs in the safest way possible. Should you need any help with your manual handling risk assessment, we are also on hand to help, and this can identify any areas of weakness that need to be addressed.

Provide Your Employees in Brisbane with the Best Training

If your colleagues complain of twinges and pains in their back or another area of their body, do not delay and make sure that you invest in quality manual handling training in Brisbane * today.  Your investment now can make all the difference in the future.

Contact us today and you can look forward to a happier, healthier, and safer workforce.

Identify Risks With A Manual Handling Assessment Brisbane

Naturally, there is a legal requirement on all businesses to provide safe workspaces for their employees, but the reality is that unless regular checks are completed and all staff are educated to the same standard and are aware of their responsibilities, then it becomes very easy for things to slip.

Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we believe that with manual handling training, Brisbane businesses can benefit from an objective overview of what they do and how it could be improved.

We seek to identify the manual handling and ergonomic hazards and risk factors that are pertinent to your business and then create an appropriate, corrective approach.

We don’t just deliver a generic talk or presentation to our clients. Instead, we consult with your key stakeholders, which include the employees, to determine how a task or process is completed.

A Brisbane manual handling assessment is designed to assess risks at your work place or job site and create customised training and/or instructional videos to rectify the issues. 

You can rest assured that your workers will get the best possible advice and learn best practices that will afford them a better quality of life at work. We help outline how to create a safe manual handling workplace, the proper manual handling techniques (lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, putting down goods), as well as so much more.
