Manual Handling Qualifications

Manual handling qualifications from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) are quality assured, easy to sell and rewarding for both you and your customers. And with a health and safety legacy over 100 years old, you can be sure that when you partner with RoSPA, you are partnering with a safe pair of hands.

During 2022/23, handling, lifting or carrying made up 17 per cent of all non-fatal injuries in the workplace[1]. Furthermore, HSE statistics reveal that annually, more than a million workers in Great Britain experience injuries or illnesses stemming from their work.

The effects can be assessed in both human costs, impacting on an individual's quality of life and, in cases of fatal injuries, the loss of life, as well as financial costs, with reduced productivity and escalating healthcare expenses[2].
