A1. Introduction and Background


All employees who are required, as part of their jobs, to undertake manual handling activities must receive Manual Handling Foundation training. Fife Council’s manual handling training meets nationally recognised standards and is aligned to the Scottish Manual Handling Passport Scheme and as such allows you (upon successful completion) to transfer this training to other employers. The training is modular in format which means that you only need to complete those modules which relate to your own job. However this e-Learning Module (Module A) is the core mandatory module. It is theory based and must be completed before you undertake the other modules which are all practical.

Check with your manager which modules are relevant for your job and require to be undertaken after completion of this module.
