Being able to assist a service user from moving from one location to another correctly is important not only for the safety of the service user but also for you. The consequences to poor manual handling are discussed within this course. Therefore, it therefore includes a high amount of practical learning to reinforce the theory elements that you will be learning. It cannot be emphasised enough just how important it is to be correctly trained on moving and handling, not only from an employee point of view but also from an employer’s responsibility.

This 1 day course is divided into two sessions:

A theory session where you will learn basic moving and handling information and in which you can demonstrate your knowledge and understanding in tasks and activities
