EssentialSkillz helps to prevent priceless mishaps at Sotheby’s
From ancient artwork to the rarest wines in the world, the auctions rooms of Sotheby’s see thousands of priceless artefacts pass through its doors every year. To help ensure that the auctioneer’s gavel is the only thing that falls, staff that are routinely enrolled on a comprehensive manual handling course that provides in-depth training regarding the invaluable works that they come in to contact with.
As Sotheby’s hold auctions around the world, it can often be difficult to find training that not only reflects the unique items but the unique locations and circumstances that make up the day to day life of an auction house. An online training course then, is the best solution as it offers greater flexibility to demonstrate the correct handling techniques for lifting, carrying and setting down items. As well as minimising potential damage to the sale items, the training course can reduce the risk of injury and any potential liability process that might result. A short test at the end of the course assesses the level of understanding gained.
Adam Courlander, the Health and Safety Officer at Sotheby’s said “I chose EssentialSkillz as their manual handling course was nice and easy to follow”.
This Manual Handling Essentials course from EssentialSkillz, a leading provider of online health and safety software, can easily be blended with a practical demonstration incorrect handling techniques for employees whose work involves a greater degree of manual handling.
