People Movers Course


This course is designed to help delegates identify and understand the risks of moving patients or elderly residents, as well as teaching them the best ways to move people safely. This programme will help delegates to recognise where lifting and moving could be hazardous and it will show them the correct steps to lift and move safely. This health and safety training for moving people ultimately aims to reduce the chance of delegates causing injury when moving service users in their care.

Each delegate will receive a course workbook. This includes key information notes from the course and activities to complete throughout the session. These workbooks can be taken away by the delegates at the end of the session to use as reference.
