During the COVID 19 restrictions, this is covered in an additional 2 hour MS Teams training session called Moving and Handling of People with Restricted Mobility for Care Support Workers/PAs.

Due to the practical nature of moving and handling of people, it is recommended when accessible, candidates complete the face to face training available through East Sussex County Council.

• A basic knowledge of key legislation affecting the moving and handling and care of objects and people
• Anatomy of the spine and how to reduce the risk of spinal injury by implementing safe handling principles
• The importance of good sitting posture
• Knowledge of a range of safe moving and handling assisted mobility techniques, i.e. assisted standing techniques
