Course description

This one day course is aimed at key individuals within organisations that complete individual Moving and Handling risk assessments and plans for adult patients or carers. The course aims to further develop their role as Manual Handling Risk Assessors and ensure that risk assessments completed are balanced, person centred, fit for purpose, optimise clients' abilities, and demonstrate clear reasoning of the risks that have been identified and how and why decisions have been reached to reduce them.

The course does not cover generic moving and handling risk assessments of objects

  • Legislation that impacts and frames the manual handling risk assessments

  • Good practice in assessing risks, demonstrating a balanced risk assessment approach

  • How to write a risk assessment and a concise MH plan.

There will be some case scenarios to work through.
