Who Will Benefit?

This one day course is ideal for all healthcare and social care staff who are involved in the moving and handling of people.

Course Description:

This is a theory and practical application course and is designed for anyone who in the course of their work could be called upon to move a load from one area to another using bodily force. It will provide the learner with the knowledge and skills required to carry out moving and handling of a load and be able to apply the principles in practice within their workplace.

When referring to "load" the principles of the course cover inanimate objects. We would wholly recommend that this course is delivered in conjunction with the Moving & Handling Practical course.

All personnel working within a Health or social Care setting should have a sound knowledge of moving and handling.
