Name of the session

 Handling and Moving Two Day Basic Induction Course

Description of course

Welcome to  Handling and Moving Two Day Basic Induction

“Keeping people safer in their work, lives and communities”

This is an essential part of your learning and will be delivered over two full days.

The two day course is for anyone who has not undertaken manual handling before or in more than two years and wished to keep themselves and others safe that they support.  All aspects of manual handling are 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.

So all we ask is you come along and get involved.
