- Change the pass mark

While the test provides evidence of understanding the information provided in the course, it is recommended that where a job role includes significant elements of manual handling, understanding is assessed by a competent person observing the individual carrying out handling in the workplace.
Any employees or contractors could usefully use this course as part of an induction process, or as refresher training. Where manual handling is a significant element of an individual’s job role, it is recommended that this course is used as part of a blended learning approach, for example as preparation for a skills-based practical course, or as a refresher of the key points.
