Manual Handling Training with Onsite Courses

Backsafe is affiliated with a National Registered Training Organisation ‘iAscend’. We work together to provide a full range of accredited and non-accredited training options for our clients.

We are a face to face training organisation the tailors an onsite course and resources to suit your business needs. Our aim is to solve the epidemic that is challenging all organisations and in turn reduce injuries suffered by working people and save millions of dollars in workers’ compensation claims and excess premiums.

Why consider a manual handling certificate of attendance?

We have developed a series of manual handling trainer courses available in Sydney, Melbourne and other major cities in Australia and the Pacific region. These are complete with assessment steps to help bring our clients to legal compliance and then to world’s best practice standards. With our 25 years of experience, we have developed a unique approach that is supported by a transformational safety philosophy in musculo-skeletal safety training and assessment. This works to maximise all stakeholder efforts towards safe workplaces, safe work practices and the creation of healthy, safe work habits.
