Manual Handling Training

What is Manual Handling?

Manual handling refers to any activity that requires use of force by individuals to life, lower push, pull, hold or restrain something.

It is something that often routinely involved in the care of participants, whether it be based around use of equipment or assisting someone in their movement.

Why is it important?

We believe that it important for participants and their supports to feel comfortable and confident with all manual handling activities for the prevention of injury to all involved and to promote the comfort and wellbeing of participants in the process.
