Manual Handling Training
Lifting, shifting, and movement are all things we do with our bodies every day.
It is second nature to us and we generally don’t think too much about how we do these activities, and the results and effects they can have on our bodies. Too often we consider our bodies only after an injury has occurred.
In the workplace the tasks that our bodies need to perform can often be repetitive, heavy and dangerous if not performed correctly and with care. Our bodies can handle most of what we ask them to do. With correct technique and more awareness of the impact of certain work activities we can work better with less stress, meaning we remain fresh and alert, reducing the risk of injury or accident to ourselves and others.
Reduce Injuries in the workplace
The Life Care Consultants Manual Handling Training is essential training for your team to help them identify the causes of discomfort, pain and injury (DPI) in the workplace. All participants will learn how to identify and outline the contributing factors that individuals and workplaces need to consider when preventing and managing DPI and outline measures used to manage the risks of staff experiencing DPI. This course will give trainees a greater understanding of the back and back-care techniques, and identify ways to manage and mitigate the risk of back injury.
