Course Information

This Moving and Handling People course is designed to help you identify and understand the risks of moving patients or elderly residents, as well as teach you the best ways to move people safely.

Poor moving and handling technique accounts for around 7000 injuries reported within the health services and social care each year, so having the correct training is critical to ensure nurses, carers and staff exercise best practice and carry out their work safely.┬áThis programme will help you to recognise where lifting and moving could be hazardous and shows you the correct steps to lift and move safely. It looks at the person you are helping and what you can do to make sure you’ve thought of everything before you lift or move them. This kind of health and safety training for moving people ultimately aims to reduce the chance of injury when moving people in your care.
