The high risk and potential severity of Manual Handling injuries has led to the legislative requirement for WHS training. However jargon and procedural overload too frequently produces a disengaged and disinterested employee base.

Recovery Partners’ Manual Handling Training program is built from in-depth consultation with organisational members and is specifically targeted toward gaining an insight into working behavioural psychology. By addressing the gap in standardised manual handling training, our unique and contextual approach has become paramount in the safe manual handling message resonating with employees. 

Our training offers a blended learning approach with a mix of both theory and practical. All participants will be provided with practical WHS tools, information and standards during the course relevant to manual handling.

Manual handling is something that every worker deals with on a daily basis and we encourage training for all your employees starting with those carrying the highest level of risk.


Delivery of the course is based on adult learning principles to a maximum of 16 people per session. We encourage a high level of participation from all attendees. This is achieved via activities, case examples and discussion.

Each training session will be two hours in duration. This time does not include setup and pack down for the trainer.
