This course combines our patient handling course with our manual handling course. Both courses are essential and as they overlap in areas, participants can save time by completing both at once. Safe patient handling and safe manual handling techniques can greatly reduce the risks involved in heavy lifting.
Upon successful completion of this course participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to:
All staff that engage in manual handling or patient handling activities during their working day. These employees are exposed to situations where the risks cannot be eliminated or reduced sufficiently.
This course is classroom based; it is highly interactive with role-playing and practical exercises to reinforce understanding and learning.
While pens and paper will be supplied, participants are free to bring their own. Participants should wear comfortable clothing for practical activities.
A maximum of 12 per course
Upon successful completion of this course participants will receive both a certificate in manual handling and patient handling.
