This course is aimed at health and social care workers - whether they are in the public or private sector. The course will enable learners to work through both theoretical and practical training.
Along with the basics of handling, our course places an emphasis on risk assessments in the workplace. The programme also delivers a summary of the TILE model, anatomy and physiology of the spine and explains the leverage effect along with the eight principles of lifting before including practical observations of the learner's ability to conduct these moves within the guidelines issued. We also provide an understanding of vital manual and patient handling legislation.
