The Safer Moving and Handling of People and Load, including Practical Level 1 course – is designed to provide learners with the essential knowledge and understanding of the safe process of moving people to prevent injury to themselves and the person being moved, whilst also covering the legal requirements regarding the handling of people.

It is aimed at those who carry out manual handling activities at work and introduces learners to the hazards of manual handling, the risks involved and controls available and what to expect from a manual handling assessment.

Successful completion will prepare participants to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of safer methods and tasks, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors. The qualification is not intended to train participants to carry out manual handling assessments nor to provide detailed training on handling techniques, although the course can easliy be expanded to a full day in order to cover these topics.
