Why you should keep up-to-date with manual handling instructor training
Do your staff need regular and in-depth manual handling training due to their job roles? Have you decided to train your own members of staff so that you can save on hiring an outside manual handling trainer?Do you know whether your trainers are still teaching the correct techniques? Are they using the latest technologies and skills from the world of manual handling? One way to make sure your staff receive the best training is to retrain the trainers themselves.
But why invest in such services? What are the benefits?
Any subject that is taught over and over again can become stale and unimaginative. The same can be said of manual handling. If the trainer lacks the same enthusiasm as he or she had when first teaching the course, then this will be passed on inadvertently to the students, creating a vicious circle of dwindling standards. One way to avoid this from happening is to keep the trainer fresh, which can be achieved by sending them on a specifically designed manual handling train the trainer course.
Up to Date Skills
There is nothing worse than learning old, out of date information that is no longer relevant. If a manual handling trainer received their training many years ago, advancements in technique and skills may have passed them by. It could lead to your business totally rewriting the manual on how to train future manual handling.
Staying up to speed in any sector is vital. The same goes for manual handling training. Making sure that the trainers are fully up to date and relevant means that your employees will be trained successfully and to the expected requirements. Do not let your manual handling trainers fall behind. It could have a big impact on staff health and safety.
