Client/Person Handling and Moving Techniques

NOTE: This course is only available as a private course booking where we deliver the training at the clients premises. It is not available as a public course.

This is a 1 day training session for up to 10 employees, involving the theory aspects of prevention of back injury to the lifter and injuries to clients/ residents.

This course should be supplemented by a Manual Handling Course.

It includes the practical methods of correct lifting procedures, as is required by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007. S.I. No. 299, 2007.

Safe methods of correct lifting and handling are demonstrated to employees.

The use of lifting equipment is an integral part of the program.

Participants are also introduced to the Care Plans of the client.

Participants are taught the requirements of ‘minimal handling’ during the training.

Following the course participants should be able to assess the clients they are about to lift, realise their own capacity and limits and handle clients more safely.

On completion, you will be issued with a certificate of attendance after the course.

Ayrton Group can provide all the articles & equipment required for the program, including hoist, bed & various other implements.
