Moving & Handling Training

Working within healthcare and social care often involves moving, lifting, or otherwise manually handling people. With this in mind, our moving and handling training programmes are designed to highlight the risks and requirements associated with manual handling.

Safe moving and handling requires healthcare employees to know the correct procedures for moving adults and children without causing injury to either themselves or the person they are supporting. This includes learning to use hoists and other aids, and being aware of the legislation surrounding moving and handling. Training may include moving & handling of patients or general moving & handling training. Care
Certificate Standard 13.3 requires staff to have completed moving and handling
training in order to offer safe assistance to those who cannot or should not
move unaided.

Moving and handling training also explains the importance of good posture and correct usage of your back during manual handling actions. Learners will also be taught how to carry out risk assessments, and recognise that even actions such as turning a bedbound patient count as moving and handling, and are subject to the same legislation.

We offer a variety of moving and handling eLearning packages, as well as face-to-face courses, so you can tailor your training experience to your specific needs. Browse the list below to explore these resources, and check out the additional materials to supplement your team’s learning.
