Manual Handling Training Course – Customer Testimonials
“I found the training I received off Angela excellent, not only was she friendly and approachable but she also was able to deliver the information across in such a clear manner and answer any questions I had so that at every stage of the course I felt confident in my understanding”
– Jemma Scott from Ebsford Environmental Ltd, West Yorkshire
“Having spoken to the team following the training they have all given excellent feedback. Personally this was the best manual handling training I have been on. You gave us all an understanding of not only how to lift properly but also how we are damaging our bodies if we don’t lift properly. The use of visual aids helped in my understanding. Unlike many training courses you had us up on our feet physically able to see for ourselves the theory behind what you were teaching us and you took the time to show us how we can safely lift items specific to our work.”
– Catherine Thornton, Environmental Health Team Leader, Craven District Council
