We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.

Fire Safety Awareness – FAA Level 1 (Level 4 Scotland) – 1/2 day

This course is designed for all employees as an introduction to basic fire safety awareness and is an excellent ingredient in the induction programme of new employees. The qualification also provides a foundation to those employees who want to develop their fire safety awareness.

The effects of fire are potentially devastating in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to business continuity. It is believed that most fires are preventable. The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
