Our Moving and Handling (People) Course has been updated to reflect guidance in Handling of People 6th Edition (HOP6) Feb 2011

" I have been doing mandatory lifting & handling training for approx 20yrs. By Far today's Moving & Handling trainin g was much more interesting & informative. Being able to do a lot more hands-on practical using all of the equipment was great. The trainer made it fun & easy to understand & learn-a course I will remeber& put into practice in my workplace"

 How is our People Handling course different?

Fane Ltd deliver practical 'Hands on' training- not just a theory course!

Our  People Handling course is endorsed by the  Royal College of Occupational Therapists-one of only a few such endorsements in the country- which means that the course, its support materials and assessment methods have been externally verified as suitable for College of Occupational Therapist members -and is subject to an annual quality review to ensure that the course meets delegate needs and is updated to reflect current legislation. You can also benefit from  this quality course either as an open course at FANE  held every month-or a bespoke course on your premises for groups of 6+ held at a time and place to suit you

What will you learn?

We will give an overview of the law, common injuries, risk assessment and controversial techniques- but the majority of your time will be spent developing the principles of safer handling to ensure your safety and that of your client. 

Taken from the Handling of People 5th & 6th Edition published by BackCare we deliver a 5-6hr course on our premises or yours & we can tailor the course to meet your needs.

We will normally cover 

Assist to Stand, including standing aids, Assist to sit, support whilst walking, lateral transfers, Bed work-including In and out of bed, movement up and down the bed, turning in bed- client independence-bed blocks, rope ladders etc and use of slide sheets, Hoist work -choosing a hoist and sling, bed to chair and chair to chair transfers, hoisting from the floor, falls prevention, wheelchair safety- you may even get to ride our camel!

- and any other topic required to meet your needs

'The course continues to be of good quality with clear learning outcomes and targeted at support workers which is relevant to occupational therapy.  From your submission and annual review it is clear that you have listened to course feedback and changed the assessment to re-balance the practical and learning content of the one day course.  We also note that  you are using and teaching with the latest technology, which shows good practice.' -Royal College of Occupational Therapists
