The HSE states that:
Moving and handling is a regular task in health and social care, which if not done safely, can cause serious injury to service users and staff.
497,000 workers in Britain sustained a work-related injury in 2018/2019 (HSE) and 37% of these injuries were new musculoskeletal disorders contributing to 29% of the working days lost due to ill health.
For employers and employees, the cost financially and to your reputation from inadequate Moving and Handling training can have devastating effects.
The Moving and Handling Awareness course is designed for:
• Anyone involved in moving and handling activities
• New employees in the care sector
• Existing members of staff who need to complete mandatory training or to update skills and knowledge
The certification displaying the course content will demonstrate how National Occupational Standards have been met.
Work through this course, watch the videos, navigate the resources to professional organisations and current legislation and prove your knowledge with interactive quizzes before being awarded the Manual Handling certificate.
Care Training Services was established in 2011 with the aim of providing outstanding training in the Health and Social Care sector. To accompany the 100’s of hours of classroom training, we are pleased to bring you the Manual Handling online course.
