Every year workers are killed or injured when moving loads, especially when using mechanical devices to move them by lifting and swinging. This online course offers a route to ensuring all your staff understand safe use and operation of lifting and slinging equipment.

The course covers techniques for the safe use of chains, ropes, slings, hooks and other lifting equipment, and aims to minimise accidents when moving loads.
