Become Physically Intelligent and avoid injury

Provention looks at the manual handling activities within a given workplace and considers sustainable ways to address the soft tissue/muscle-related injuries that are due to the high degree of physical activity in many job roles.

First Move Manual Handling equips your organisation with the right tools, so you can implement and maintain an effective Physical Movement Programme now and in the long-term.


Training Approach

All First Move programmes engage workers and enable them to take responsibility for their own safety and well-being, as well as that of others.

First Move Manual Handling is a practical, interactive programme that enables participants to discover what their current movement habits are, and what the consequences of these are.

We can then make positive changes to improve participants’ physical capabilities and physical intelligence to avoid strain and injury.

First Move Manual Handling is delivered through a combination of short video clips and practical interaction. Video can be personalised to your company, with photos and examples to re-enforce the First Move principals.


Delivery Method

First Move Manual Handling may be delivered in 3 ways:

An External Trainer

A Provention Trainer delivers First Move Manual Handling directly to your team.

Your Own Trainers

Train the Trainer approach

Provention trains members of your team so they can manage First Move Manual Handling internally. This approach has been designed for large corporates so they can implement a consistent, effective, safe and sustainable physical movement programme.

Online Training

An online competency-based learning programme.  This is designed to support the interactive First Move Manual Handling – but can also be used as a stand-alone programme.
