Moving and Handling training
We’ll be announcing a new timetable of our popular ‘Moving and Handling’ training soon.
Read what’s covered:
The moving and handling session is a 4.5 hour course and is comprised of two parts.
The first hour is a presentation, looking at the theory around moving and handling, which covers:
- statistics of back pain/injury
- legislation relating to moving and handling
- risk assessment
- principles of safe handling and back care advice (and of course techniques which have been banned)
The majority of the course is a practical session, where there will be demonstrations of how to use different pieces of equipment (slide sheets, handling belts, rota stand, transfer boards, slings and hoist).
Delegates get an opportunity to use the equipment too (if they wish) and ask any questions.
