Save Money & Time By Reducing Compensation Premiums & Workplace Injuries Through Manual Handling Training
Manual Handling Training Course in Gold Coast
Each workplace is different and some are much more active than others. There is no one way to ensure that a working environment is safe and in keeping with health standards, and so it is important that employers consider and seek the advice of external consultants that are well-versed and can bring a level of understanding, experience and advice to the table that will stand them, and their employees, in good stead.
Here at Corporate Work Health Australia, we deliver manual handling training to Gold Coast businesses to ensure that they are compliant with the prevailing health and safety regulations. Our team is backed by qualified health professionals including occupational therapists, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists and osteopaths, all of whom have considerable experience in determining suitable and actionable solutions to boost worker health and safety.
Manual Handling Training Course for Gold Coast Businesses
If your business involves an element of manual handling, calling in external consultants to complete your manual handling training for your Gold Coast business is an investment worth making. Nearly thirty million dollars are spent each year in Australia because of injuries. With that said, the right training can significantly lessen the risk of injuries in the workplace because you are spending the time and money educating your staff in best practice.
Our manual handling course for Gold Coast businesses is bespoke. We design a package that suits your needs, so you can be reassured that, unlike many other training courses, your staff will not have to sit through hours of irrelevant material and feel like they are wasting their time.
Manual Handling Designed Around Your Business
At Corporate Work Health Australia, we understand that each type of business is different. For example, a factory is going to operate very differently to an office even if both have an element of manual handling involved. For this reason, we spend time designing a customised manual training program.
Before we come to your workplace to deliver the training, we review your workplace, speaking to key stakeholders and observing current manual handling practice. By doing this, we ensure the best training is delivered to you.
Training occurs at your place of work for the very simple reason that we can demonstrate work in action and show you how it works for your business. A course that takes place in a hotel can be great in theory, but practically it cannot offer the same results that you will get from Corporate Work Health Australia.
Through the training, we educate staff on the hazards and risks of their area of work, teaching them how to sit, stand, move, lift, operate mechanical aids, use of other materials, and other areas that are important to their job. They will also be given the opportunity to ask any questions that they may have.
A Professional and Thorough Approach to Your Manual Handling
Manual handling training for your Gold Coast business is vital to the overall success and productivity of your company. By working with an experienced team of healthcare professionals, you can be confident that your employees are in the best hands and will receive training that keeps them safe in the workplace.
Once your staff have been trained, you can look forward to better morale in your workplace. It may go without saying, but a workforce that feels cared for by its employer will often work harder for you than those who feel underappreciated and unsafe in their work.
You can also complement your training with a manual handling risk assessment that Corporate Work Health Australia can complete for you. By doing this, you can be sure that you are meeting legal requirements, along with being able to address any areas that fall short.

Common, Identifiable Manual Handling Mistakes That Happen in the Gold Coast
There are plenty of things that we do every day, some of which we may not even be aware of, but that has a negative impact on our bodies. At Corporate Work Health Australia, we seek to highlight areas that pose a risk or threat to the wellbeing of the workforce through a manual handling risk assessment. Our manual handling course for Gold Coast businesses helps to bring these to the attention of those affected and from there we create new solutions that lead to good practices.
Some of the ways we can help identify and address common manual handling mistakes include:
- Teach Proper Manual Handling Techniques
There are countless workplace injuries every year that could be prevented by using a trolley or a cart. Picking or lifting and carrying may seem like the quickest way to get something done, but without knowing how to, or having an informed awareness of one’s ability to actually complete the task, this can strain and injure the body. The added downside is that productivity drops for the day and while your employee recovers. Undertaking a manual handling course can help educate your employees on the proper procedures to reduce the risk of injury.
- Start a Conversation with Employees on Manual Handling Risks & Concerns
One of the worst things a company can do is to ignore the complaints of their employees. If they are repeatedly noting strain or pain as a result of any of the processes they carry out, then this needs to be addressed. Your workforce knows where the flaws are, so we believe that including them in the conversation is key to finding better ways to work.
