Manual Handling

Manual handling remains the singular leading cause of workplace injuries and compensation claims, directly responsible for over a third of reported incidents at work. Employees that suffer from manual handling injuries often face prolonged effects to their wellbeing and work capabilities. Next World’s VR Manual Handing course is designed to teach employees how to safety complete manual handling tasks, including understanding which musculoskeletal systems are at risk, how the Hierarchy of Controls can be used to manage risks, and how to identify dangerous manual handling scenarios.

Learning Outcomes

The central focus of this course is to teach employees correct manual handling techniques and why they’re important.


Why Choose Immersive Learning?

Higher Retention Rate

Our VR training courses are built from the ground up to offer the most immersive training experience possible. Because of this deep user immersion, VR training has been proven to result in much higher retention rates – up to 80% one year after training, compared to just 20% from traditional training methods.

Increase In Confidence

Immersive learning helps build confidence in trainees abilities and prepares them for real-world situations by allowing them to practice and test their skills in challenging scenarios. A recent PwC study found VR training increased the confidence of participants by 275%.

Safe Training In Hazardous Situations

In addition to providing an immersive and engaging training environment, VR allows trainees to experience the consequences of poor safety while they train and practice their skills in high danger scenarios without any of the normal risks or costs.
