Manual Handling Trainer – Moving and Handling – Patient Handling
Finding the right trainer
- Do you need your people trained by a manual handling professional?
- Do you need to ensure the safety of your staff during difficult manual and patient handling situations?
Our trainers are not just classroom trainers but work on front line ambulances, undertaking routine transferes as well as 999 emergency work.
Our Mangual Handling Trainers are involved in some of the most complex manual handling operations and risks of any profession today.
In addition our trainers undergo regular training and have to prove their competence every years to an independent organisation.
Manual Handling Training we offer
As well as the very basics of manual handling, the introduction to moving inanimate objects.
We can then progress to assisted client and patient moving:
- Assistance to stand
- Assistance to walk – with and without aids
- Chair to chair transfers
- Chair to floor for emergences
- Use of wheel chairs
- Use of evacuation chairs and equipment
- Use of hoists (manual and electric)
- Slide patients/ clients up a bed
- Roll and turn patients/ clients
Risk assessments of manual handling and patient handling can be complex and difficult. We can undertake risk assessments and work with you to identify suitable manual handling aids, as well as train your people in the appropriate risk assessment methods for your environment.
We use several risk assessment methods including the TILEE
- Task – to be done
- Individual – limitations and factors
- Load – to be moved
- Equipment – available to assist
- Environment – in which the activity or move is being made
In organisations today we need to look after the health safety and wellbeing of our people.
Those involved in the Manual Handling of people is a key part of that responsibility.
The Team at RapidBI have over 20 years of experience training others in the skills and techniques of people handling, in a range of environments including pre-hospital, hospital care home and domestic environment.
