Manual Handling Training

Coastal Physiotherapy offers manual handling training in Maroochydore and the Sunshine Coast to employers.

Manual handling training will assist your organisation to reduce the risk of injury with the performance of hazardous manual tasks.  The training has been designed to reflect the content of the relevant Code of Practice, and will educate your staff in the correct way to minimise their risk of injury during the performance of work tasks.

Unlike many manual handling training programs, even if it is delivered in a classroom it will not be about how to “lift a box” safely.  The use of photographic and video analysis will bring to life the real challenges faced within the organisation, with an extensive practical component.  This training has a strong focus on risk assessment and risk control, as well as how to maintain correct posture and how to lift safely.
