This Scheme has been developed by the Welsh Assembly Government and Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in order to make the standards of Manual Handling consistent across the country. Employers & employees both benefit from having a recognised training standard that can be transferred to new departments and other organisations.

This course covers both the All Wales Manual Handling Passport Scheme and Train the Trainer which enables candidates to carry out manual handling training back at their workplace.

We also provide a 2 day refresher session of this training for those looking to update their CPD.
