(Moving & Handling)
Who should attend:
Anyone needing knowledge to protect themselves and those in their care from injury whilst carrying out lifting procedures.
The training will cover all aspects of correct & safe people handling including lifting aids and hoists.
This course is delivered over three contact hours but can be extended to a full day duration where the staff group is large and hence the assessment period required is longer or for staff groups where in-house experience is particularly limited. Practical instruction will be possible when the training is delivered on-site, allowing use of the actual equipment that the delegates will be working with.
All candidates who participate to the required level will receive a certificate of attendance from Essential Training
