Childcare Manual Handling Course is designed for people working with children whether at home or at work. Most people carry out hundreds of daily movements including lifting, lowering, pulling, carrying or moving things throughout the day, this includes lifting of children. As a result of repeated lifting, we strain the back due to poor habits carried out over many months or years. People, unfortunately, don’t think about their back until they are in pain, by then the damage is done.

With our Childcare Manual Handling Training Course, our aim is to give people knowledge and understanding of how to carry out manual handling and look after their back and to know when not to lift and when to ask for help instead. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge to carry out childcare manual handling without the risk of injury.
