Manual Handling - People Manual Handling Awareness for Support Workers : Online Live Training


Overview/Content
The ability to apply safe manual handling principles and techniques is an essential skill for support workers who are supporting clients with reduced mobility.
Our suite of manual handling courses for support and health care workers are designed specifically for people working as home care workers, personal carers, nurses, aged care or disability support workers. The course develops the knowledge required to recognise the manual handling tasks performed when supporting client/s, the ways in which these tasks may lead to injuries, and how using safe work practices when assisting their client can minimise the risk of these injuries occurring.
This manual handling program is focused on providing knowledge to support workers who are required to assist clients who are both semi-dependent and dependent and specifically develop manual handling knowledge skills relating to client transfer from bed to chair/wheelchair, sit to stand and walking with aids.
This presentation by a nurse educator is relevant for support workers in supported independent living centres, residential care, aged care, day programs and hospitals.
