The HSE reports that lifting, handling and carrying accounts for 19% of non-fatal injuries in the workplace.
That is nearly a quarter of injuries, making it vital that manual handling safety is improved, particularly in environments such as warehouses where manual handling and the moving of heavy goods occurs daily.
This course will equip you with a detailed understanding of a variety of warehouse processes, including manual handling, stock checks, processing orders, storage and packaging of goods and assembling for dispatch. You will also look in detail at the customer service process and how it can impact an organisation.
This course is split into four manageable units:
- Unit 1: Health and safety requirements in a warehousing environment
- Unit 2: Understand the principles of warehousing goods
- Unit 3: Understand the process of stock checking and preparing goods for dispatch
- Unit 4: The importance of customer service in a warehousing environment.
This course is delivered via distance learning, allowing you to choose when and where you study and you will gain a nationally recognised qualification.
Study enhances both your personal skills and professional development.
Personal Tutors are assigned to you to ensure that they have the support needed to succeed.
