This new C.I.E.H. qualification provides essential information about manual handling hazards and their control
To give you maximum flexibility this one qualification gives you two possible outcomes. Part 1 can be delivered as a half-day programme for learners who only wish to gain the C.I.E.H. Level 2 Award in Principles of Manual Handling. Those who need to learn about practical manual handling techniques can stay on for a further half day training session and assessment to gain the full C.I.E.H. Level 2 Award in Manual Handling - Principles and Practice.
The C.I.E.H. has developed this qualification to benefit anyone who has to carry out any manual handling activities at work by introducing them to the hazards of manual handling, the risks involved and the controls that are available to help prevent injury. The course in addition will teach learners techniques to lift, carry, push and pull objects safely within their individual capabilities with the aim of reducing the number of work-related injuries associated with manual handling.
Part 1 will allow learners to understand the risks associated with manual handling and to make recommendations to manage those risks.
Part 2 will allow learners to apply the principles of safer handling to a range of everyday manual handling tasks.
The qualification covers the following topics:
30 multiple choice questions plus practical assessment
Candidates should have completed the Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace or similar
