Assisiting and moving people,(manual handling of people) course, is often called different things by different people. However, it is all the same course, so you may hear it described as: safer people handling, assisting and moving people, or manual handling of people. Do not worry they are all different titles for the same thing.
What we are going to do is to teach you how to safely use a mobile hoist and how to safely attach two types of sling that are commonly used. These are an access sling and a full sling; we will also teach you about the legal requirements and the safety checks that you will be responsible for when hoisting somebody. we will cober slide sheet use and look at patient handing skills and 3 basic types of people rolls.
Please do not worry if this is new to you, one of the advantages of the e-learning model is that you are able to look at the use of the equipment in easy sections. For those of us who are refreshing our existing manual handling training, we will also be covering legal updates that you will be required to be aware of. As well as ensuring that your skills are up to date for today’s requirements.
