People Moving and Handling: Train the Trainer

People Moving and Handling Train the Trainer

Fit4Work’s People Moving and Handling Train the Trainer course will train your employees to deliver manual handling training to others in your organisation.

When moving and handling patients, the risk of injury to both staff and patients is huge.

If handlers aren’t using the correct handling techniques or equipment, they could develop musculoskeletal disorders, which can negatively impact their health and productivity.

It’s important that handlers can carry out their role safely and effectively to ensure the safety of themselves and the people in their care.

Having an in-house trainer is a cost-effective way to quickly train new staff, ensure all carers are using up-to-date handling techniques and reduce the risks of injury, accidents and potential lawsuits.

Why use Fit4Work for your training needs?

Designed and deployed by Angela Hinton MCSP HPC, a Chartered Physiotherapist, specialist in musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation, and trusted provider of workplace health and safety training, Fit4Work’s People Moving and Handling Train the Trainer courses provide a truly superior learning experience.

At Fit4Work, we’re committed to providing your organisation with the knowledge, support and guidance your trainers need to design, deliver and implement safe training practices.

Our trainers are highly qualified and experienced, often having worked within the NHS and health and social care settings. They have an invaluable, hands-on understanding of the realities of the day-to-day demands faced by the sector.

We deliver the course at a pace relevant to the group’s experience and every attendee will receive a comprehensive training manual, an editable PowerPoint presentation and access to the videos used on the course.

Who is the People Moving and Handling Train the Trainer Course aimed at?

The course is specifically designed to provide learners with the skills and knowledge required to deliver a high standard of manual handling training to their own staff.

It’s ideal for those who are looking to improve their knowledge of the subject area, or those whose roles require evidence of periodic continuing professional development (CPD) as part of their professional registration requirements.
