Posture Group is a leading provider of online health and safety risk management software systems.

The system will ensure that your company complies with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, which were revised in 1998 and amended in 2002. The regulations require employers to minimise the health risks associated with manual handling and are a legal requirement.

The employee manual handling training system incorporates the following components:

  • A comprehensive training slideshow covers all aspects of manual handling techniques and procedures.
  • The training is followed by a multiple choice questionnaire to assess the employee’s knowledge of the training provided on manual handling.
  • On completion of the assessment the employee can download and print their manual handling training course certificate to validate their completion of the course.
  • Designated health and safety managers, and line managers, are given access to the online administration area where they can view who has completed their training and view and print any course completion certificates.

More than 3,000 companies are using Posture Group's online health and safety risk management software systems to streamline and automate their health and safety training and assessment processes and cut their costs by up to 90%.

What does the software cost and how much will you save?

The costs of the system will vary between £1 per license and £12 per license depending on the number of users and employees that need to be trained.
