Course Description

Manual handling tasks are common in most workplaces, but some are more dangerous than others. These activities often cause injuries in the workplace, highlighting the importance of safe execution. Adequate training is necessary to avoid accidents and potential harm to employees, especially when handling hazardous substances or materials.

The training in this course aims to equip you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to identify risky manual handling tasks and the factors contributing to them. You will also learn methods to mitigate risks by adopting safe handling techniques and controls. In addition, you will understand the body’s movement and functions during manual handling tasks, the significance of correct posture and positioning, and how to recognize and report injury symptoms.

Through this course, you will learn how to save lives, prevent the deterioration of the condition, and promote recovery. The training includes initial intervention in life-threatening cases, such as performing CPR while waiting for medical assistance or providing first aid in various settings, such as workplaces and communities.

This course adheres to the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and is suitable for anyone who may need to administer CPR in case of an emergency, in compliance with the relevant Australian and New Zealand regulations, standards, and industry codes of practice, such as the Hazardous Manual Tasks Code of Practice.
