People Handling Training

Course Introduction

Many organisations have job toles which require the movement of people and patients. If performed incorrectly, such moving and handling can put both the handler and client at risk. Training is a key method to ensure that handlers are able to conduct their own dynamic risk assessments, choose the correct method of movement and safely use any equipment required to control the risk.
