MESH has trained a group of employees at C Scope based in Ashford, Kent. The staff received practical advice on both manual handling legislation and how to apply safe handling techniques. The tasks the staff regularly carry out include lifting heavy and awkward shape loads, such as sailing boats.
The training also covered:
- Developing an understanding of the importance of quickly assessing the risks before undertaking the tasks;
- The safe use of handling aids;
- A practical demonstration of how to apply safe lifting to the tasks undertaken by the staff.
