Why Choose Phoenix Health & Safety E-Learning  

Phoenix Health & Safety are the UK’s premier providers of health and safety training and health and safety consultancy services. Operating from a head office in Staffordshire, we have consultants and training venues all around the UK, ensuring you always have local advice and training courses.

We offer a variety of fully online health and safety courses, including IOSH Working SafelyIOSH Managing SafelyHealth and Safety AwarenessManual HandlingDisplay Screen EquipmentFire Safety and many more.

The e-learning courses are interactive and include activities, scenarios and quizzes to engage learners and keep them interested. Every course has a final assessment which is designed to prove that the delegate has reached the required level of knowledge, as well as assisting with the employers’ legal duty to ensure staff have been adequately trained.

Courses can be accessed on computer, tablet or mobile devices. It is not necessary to complete the courses in one session, as the system bookmarks where learners got to so that they can continue later from where they left off.

Once the course has been completed, a confirmation of results can be printed or saved as proof of completion. This can then be kept on record or in personal files as evidence of suitable training.

If required, the courses can be tailored to suit the organisation. This may be as simple as including your logo, or you may wish to go further and include relevant photographs, videos, or even attach your forms/templates to the course. There are no limits to what can be achieved by our team of UK based in-house e-learning developers.

Additionally, we are able to build online e-learning courses uniquely for clients from scratch. You might be looking for a course on another subject, or you may want to covert a current paper based course into a dynamic, interactive online course.

Phoenix’s Manual Handling Awareness course helps organisations to protect the welfare of employees who have a responsibility to handle, lift and carry items. According to the HSE, more than 20% of all non-fatal workplace injuries in the UK are caused by incorrect handling, lifting and carrying. Most are musculoskeletal injuries, which are the third most common cause of absence from work, exceeded only by stress and colds/flu.

It is in the interest of every employer to make sure that all employees have sufficient manual handling training. It is also their legal duty under the Manual Handling Regulations 1992 (MHOR). This law sets out requirements for handling everything from animals and people to boxes and packages.

As well as offering training, we have the expertise to carry out a manual handling risk assessment for your organisation. Our team can also provide you with forms, examples and support if you choose to carry out your own risk assessment.

Who can benefit from manual handling training?

This course is suitable for all employees who are required to engage in manual handling or responsible for moving heavy loads, in all occupations and at all levels.

Our manual handling awareness course helps you to meet your legal obligations as an employer.
