Changes to All Our Manual Handling Sessions

We are excited to welcome you to our new look Manual Handling learning programmes.  We have looked at how we deliver these sessions due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.  We have redesigned our training programmes, looking at less face-to-face time, reduced attendees and using a blended model of online training and face-to-face practical sessions. 

We also want to keep everyone safe during these unprecedented times, we have introduced temperature checks prior to commencing the face-to-face sessions.  We have also introduced the wearing of PPE, which we will provide.  You will also notice that the training room has had a face lift too, to adhere to social distancing policies where we can.  We also have intensive hygiene supplies for all our equipment and for your personal use, for the health and safety of everyone.  We look forward to welcoming people back to our training room, where we hope you will have a great learning experience.


Manual Handling Induction Training

Welcome to our new Manual Handling Induction training programme, which includes our fantastic Easy Manual Handling website to support our blended learning model.

The Induction course is for anyone who has not undertaken manual handling before or in more than two years and wish to keep themselves and others safe that they support.  Everyone attending will be asked to visit our website prior to attending face-to-face session.  We ask that you look at current legislation and watching our videos on chair moves, wheelchairs, assisted walking and equipment.  You will then attend a face-to-face session which will be split into two days, running from 09:30 –13:30 each day.

All aspects of manual handling will be covered and everyone who attends will be encouraged to get involved through a range of conversations, demonstrations on safe and efficient techniques and manoeuvres. We will have practical sessions on how to use current equipment such as wheelchairs, hoists, stand aids, slings, glide sheets and lots more. We hope the course will encourage everyone to think and promote safer ways of working while looking after their own health and those of others either in work, life or the community.
