Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), including manual handling injuries, are the most common type of occupational ill health in the UK. It is important to remember that:
There is a lot you can do to prevent them;  Preventative measures are often simple and cost-effective;  You cannot prevent all MSDs, but where they occur, early reporting of symptoms, proper treatment and suitable rehabilitation are essential.

Successful completion of the course will prepare delegates 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 delegates to carry out manual handling risk assessments.
