QA Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling (RQF)

QA Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling (RQF)- 1 Day Course (Ofqual Regulated)

The law states that employers have a legal responsibility to provide adequate training for those who perform manual handling tasks in their day-to-day role. However, with incorrect manual handling causing over a third of workplace injuries, adequate training is not only a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all staff.

Managers, supervisors, and other members of staff should be able to recognise the hazards posed by their work, be able to take action to reduce or eliminate the risks and understand how to follow procedures. Employers have duties under health and safety law to assess risks in the workplace. Risk assessments should be carried out that address all risks that might cause harm in your workplace. Employers must give you information about the risks in your workplace and how you are protected, also instruct and train you on how to deal with the risks.

Hazardous substances can affect anyone within the workplace, not just those who handle them regularly. This COSHH training course is designed to give workers knowledge of the health risks surrounding work with hazardous substances, including how to undertake a COSHH assessment by identifying the risks and the control measures needed, and ensure that they understand how to work safely with hazardous substances.
