An introduction to Moving and Handling

 

Moving & Handling accidents cause many sick days every year, particularly in social care where the range of activities and duties carried out by staff are so varied.  Care providers have to consider not only the safety of their staff, but the rights, independence and dignity of their service users during moving & handling related tasks.  Generic manual handling courses do not take these issues into account.

SPIC Moving & Handling training is specifically designed with carers in mind.  As well as covering Health & Safety, Law and Risk Assessment, it also discusses service user rights, ethical issues, and a varied range of approaches to helping people to move, with plenty of practice and discussion time.  The courses are adaptable and can be tailored to suit domestic staff, high mobility services such as day centres or mental health services, or high-need services such as nursing homes and palliative care facilities.
