All employees whose jobs put strain on the back.


The Ergonomics – Physical Movement of Loads training course teaches the basic techniques necessary for manually lifting and moving loads in a sensible way. These techniques considerably reduce the risk of accidents.

Course content


In addition to the relevant physiology and ergonomics, the theory part of the course includes actual examples of good and bad handling methods 

  • Feedback from participants
  • Frequency of the number of accidents resulting in back injuries
  • Anatomy
  • Types of back problems (anatomic causes and movements) 
  • Prevention of back problems (posture, avoiding strain, physical conditioning. Examples) 
  • Motivation


Practical exercises for implementing the elements handled in the theory part of the course. Implementing a LMRA (Last-Minute Risk Assessment) within this specific context. 

  • ‘Manual handling’ exercises: safe handling of loads
  • Recognising harmful and correct postures
  • Knowing and applying various techniques for minimising the risk of back injuries
