Thinking ahead before moving any sort of load, and ensuring that the route is clear are both important to the reduction of risk with associated hazards.
This training DVD discusses:
- Planning where you intend to carry a load
- Correct Lifting techniques
- Mechanical aids
- Communication between staff
There can be a substantial amount of lifting, pushing and pulling required in the non clinical areas of a hospital but with a little forethought, improved technique and some planning, the required manual handling can be risk free.
