This course provides delegates with knowledge of safe moving and handling techniques and a basic knowledge of equipment they may need to use to safely move and handle a client. This course does not cover clients with restricted mobility issues, i.e. those who need hoisting or are cared for in bed. During the COVID 19 restrictions, this is covered in an additional 2 hour skype 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. 

The course covers:

  •  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
  •  Techniques to assist someone getting in and out of a bed.

This is a remotely delivered course and delegates should therefore ignore any map or venue information.
