Safer Moving And Handling with IHSPatient Handling Training

IHS's Manual Handling Courses & Patient Handling Courses are aimed at meeting the requirements of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 (& subsequent amendments) that apply to Moving and Handling in the workplace. IHS also runs regular Manual Handling / Patient Handling Instructor Training courses - ideal for companies/nursing homes/hospitals who require their own in-house Manual Handling Instructor and Assessor 

Our Manual Handling/Patient Handling Courses are delivered on-site to groups by experienced Nurse Tutors
Currently we do not offer either of these courses as a public walk-in course

Back injuries are becoming increasingly common in industry. Many of these injuries are as a result of repeated incorrect handling techniques and therefore can be easily prevented. Each organisation has a legal responsibility in accordance with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 to ensure a systematic approach to the assessment of moving and handling and control of risks. The recommendation is that each employee is provided with a moving and handling course and that this is updated on an annual basis.

Courses are customised for the particular workplace involved.
