Summit Health & Fitness recognises that manual handling injuries are preventable. Our training offers a practical guide for employers, workers and self-employed people to help prevent manual handling injuries in the workplace by implementing risk management procedures.

  • Eliminate or control those risks.


  • 1. Common injuries in the workplace
  • 2. What is low back pain?
