Moving and Handling



This course is a useful addition to practical training, highlighting the importance of risk assessment and good posture when undertaking manual handling tasks. In this course staff can also find information on how to maintain musculoskeletal health, as well as how to manage musculoskeletal pain with a positive mindset.


A standardised, endorsed, national core curriculum is a key means to deliver cost-effective training with minimised retraining as people move between organisations. This course aims to help prevent injury to healthcare staff. In health and social care, work often involves manual handling, so knowing how to do it safely is very important for staff both at work and at home.
