How often should I undertake Manual Handling Refresher Training?
Manual Handling training is something that needs to be refreshed from time to time. Refer back to your workplace to find exactly when you need to undertake refresher training. As a guideline though, the risk of injury increases the longer you leave it, particularly if you perform manual handling tasks on a regular basis.
You should not leave the refreshment of your manual handling training longer than 3 years. In many cases, it may be advisable to do a manual handling course earlier than this, particularly if you need your manual handling certificate for compliance reasons.
