This programme is concerned with the movement and handling of individuals to maximise their physical comfort. Although it is primarily concerned with moving and handling people, the health and safety principles described should be applied to all loads.
The programme covers the moving of individuals who require assistance to move from one position to another.
The final module is specifically concerned with assisting clients, to prevent and minimise the adverse effects of pressure. The other modules also discuss moving and handling methods, to prevent damage to pressure areas.
The importance of recognising the individual’s needs and wishes, and involving them in the decision making process is emphasised. Also explored is the assessment of health and safety risks to clients and care workers.
