Manual Handling Course

Manual Handling eLearning course content

The course is accessible on our eLearning platform. Upon booking, you will receive your unique log in details so that you can access the course. You will have up to a year to complete the training before your license expires.

The Highfield training course covers six training modules; each module goes over an essential manual handling related subject via activities and slides.

The modules include:

  • What is manual handling?
  • The LITE stairway to safety
  • Manual handling techniques
  • Lifting with multiple people
  • Manual handling examples


The final examination of the course consists of five multiple-choice questions. You must answer all the questions correctly to pass.

How long is a Manual Handling eLearning course?

The course will take you around 30-40 minutes to complete.  The short duration allows you to quickly and efficiently gain the knowledge you need without affecting your productivity.

The course price is a fraction of the classroom training course; you will also save money by eliminating the need to travel and park at a 3B Training venue.

Why should I take this course?

Most of us have to do some form of manual handling in our job role, whether daily in a warehouse or just collecting a delivery to the office. But, without proper training, how do you know that you are lifting correctly and safely?

Poor manual handling is a contributor to one-third of workplace injuries. By completing this course, you are avoiding having a manual injury yourself.

The course is an ideal course to include in an employee induction training programme. The online course also is completed as a refresher course for those currently holding the Manual Handling Course qualification.
