 Safe Manual Handling

 

SMH 3

At last, a manual handling program that is fun, interesting and massively reduces injuries caused by harmful manual handling habits! 

Boring "keep your back straight and bend your knees" approaches no longer cut it. We have an entirely different method, which is to build in unconscious work habits that work ALL the joints of the body in the right way

Southern Cross Manual Handling training protects people from unknowingly building injury into their bodies - preventing pain and disablement now and into the future. This training is essential to resolve for good all Manual Handling injuries -  Clients report up to 80% reduction in injuries over the following 12 months!

Delivered by Bede Draper, 1/2 day workshop 

 CORPORATES

For Corporate Groups we run Classes in two modes:

  1. Face - to - Face on site - provided you have training facilities large enough to meet the 4 sqm per participant and 1.5 m separation criteria!   
  2. Virtual classroom - great if your staff are spread around several locations in Australia, using virtual training platforms such as ZOOM. This enable us to deliver the full potential of face-to-face learning to your participants.

 Manual Handling Operators - half day workshop

The following quote from a client (details below) pretty much sums up our approach to Manual Handling training “.;.The course covered far more than usual, more about preventing injuries and changing or preventing people from developing bad habits that will cause injuries later in life. Within a few minutes of the training starting, Bede Draper had the group laughing loud enough for the Operations Manager to hear and come to see what was going on. He ended up sitting through much of the training not wanting to miss out on the fun

This is not your usual Manual Handling course that your staff dread, filled with boredom and little retained learning!  Using a lot of interaction with the class, Bede gets the group to really understand how injury invisibly builds up in their bodies - and how this can be prevented

Our training method gives your participants an understanding of how unconscious MH habits build injuries into the body.  They see the necessity of teaching our bodies habits that are not harmful.  Participants are taught how to buiild into their bodies habits that automatically use the body as a positive instrument of manual handling work -  without the usual build-up of damage. This is why clients tell us that our back safe training can result in massive reduction of injuries in the organisation's workplace!Workbook: is given to each participant.  It contains the slides used during the presentation.  It is a permanent reminder of the key principles and actions to help your staff to learn unconscious practices which will reduce injuries in your workplace, increase productivity and – importantly – experience less back pain!       Check out the testimonials below

Testimonials

THE ICONIC engaged Bede to conduct Manual Handling Training at our Sydney based Fulfillment Centre in May/July 2019 to target Musculoskeletal injury trends related to Manual Handling.  In conjunction with management strategies and engineering improvements , we observed a decrease of 85% of MSD LTI injuries in the 6 month period following training roll out in 2019 and would recommend Bede's training to complement any WHS strategy aiming to reduce MSD Injury trends by empowering staff with the knowledge of best practise manual handling and awareness of why it is important. 

We found Bede's approach to training to be refreshing and flexible.  His training delivery out not only displayed exceptional knowledge and understanding of Ergonomics and Manual Handling but what set it apart was the way in which he connected with staff from all walks of life to help them understand the importance of positive manual handling practices.   

Feedback from trainees was that 100% felt that the training was valuable to improve Manual Handling practices, and that the format of the training with a classroom & practical component, and its delivery was both engaging and effective

Overall - we had a positive experience with Bede and would strongly recommend his Manual Handling Training to any business wanting to empower their staff to reduce injuries in manual work environments.

What a Great Day, the training was fantastic. When the staff were told about doing manual handling training, most of them had excuses as to why they did not need to do it. Their shoulders dropped and a look of disappointment was on their faces as they were told of the training.

But what can I say. The course covered far more than usual, more about preventing injuries and changing or preventing people from developing bad habits that will cause injuries later in life. Within a few minutes of the training starting, Bede Draper had the group laughing loud enough for the Operations Manager to hear and come to see what was going on. He ended up sitting through much of the training not wanting to miss out on the fun.

The training was the best I have seen and I am quite sure that all involved would say the same. We will definitely use Bede again when needed and highly recommend him for any company that needs manual handling training. His approach to manual handling is unique and highly effective. We have never seen anything like it.

Hi Bede, I would like to pass my thanks onto you for the presentation I attended re the Back Safe Training in NZ. I have attended many back safe presentations over the years, but I found your session to be one of the most engaging and therefore most enjoyable sessions I have been in. The interaction and involvement you got from a team of very quiet and reserved individuals was outstanding. 

The feedback I received from these guys after the session was very positive. General feedback from the other sites around the country was that this was the best back safe training they had been involved in. Thanks again

Rodney Hankins, National Operations Manager, Chep, New Zealand

 


 

In 2010, CHEP New Zealand ran a manual handling program at a national level in New Zealand. The training in all our sites was facilitated by Bede Draper. This was a new approach to this type of training which we adopted because we were looking for a more engaged approach to Manual Handling training. 

The results of the training became obvious following the training, Nationally our manual handling injury rate reduced by 65% in the next year.  This result was a direct consequence of Bede’s exceptional skill as a manual handling trainer and his ability to get the message across in a clear, engaging and lively manner. 

If you want to have a direct and measurable impact on your manual handling injuries, I would strongly recommend Bede Draper and the highly effective training approach he uses.

Richard Dunn,SH&E Manager CHEP New Zealand
