FAQ - THE MOVING AND HANDLING OF PEOPLE TRAINING COURSE

Frequently Asked Questions

We hope our common Moving and Handling FAQs will help answer any further questions you may have. Just click to expand!

What is moving and handling? Moving and Handling or Moving and Handling of People is moving, lifting and handling someone else in a safe way that doesn't hurt either yourself or the service user. It can also be referred to as Manual Handling of People. This is largely regulated by the same regulations as Manual Handling of Objects which is related to the moving of items either by lifting, lowering, carrying, pushing or pulling.

There is a significant amount of Moving and Handling legislation that organisation's need to follow in order to help, support and protect people in the workplace and to assist employers and employees to understand their responsibilities and operate safely.
What is the importance of moving and handling training?

The importance of Moving and Handling training is to ensure carers learn the correct Moving and Handling techniques to prevent and reduce the risk of injuries to service users or themselves. Especially as Moving and Handling in Health and Social Care is a key part of any working day for most employees.

Individuals who require assistance can be elderly, frail or prone to pain and if the wrong techniques are used you could inflict dislocated joints, fractured bones, ruptured ligaments and broken skin on the individual or musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) on yourself. If regular training doesn't occur, it can be costly and difficult to manage – causing time off, inability to carry out roles effectively, emotional distress and in some circumstances legal proceedings.

Our Moving and Handling training course incorporates everything you need to know.

What are the principles for safe moving and handling?

The principles for safe moving and handling are factors/potential hazards to consider when carrying out moving and handling activities. The more moving and handling principles you can apply, the safer the handling will become. Here are some simple steps to take:

  1. Plan the lift & reduce the distance if needed
  2. Map out the route
  3. Know how often you need to perform the task
  4. Ensure you have adequate training - such as our Moving and Handling training course
  5. Know your limits
What are good moving and handling techniques?

Good Moving and Handling technique is a helpful addition to the steps you should take to reduce the risks but shouldn't be a substitute. They can include:

  1. Use the power position
  2. Use the correct equipment if required
  3. Don't bend your back as you lift
  4. Avoid leaning to one side or twisting
  5. Keep your head up

What responsibilities should be considered when moving and handling a patient?

Both employers and employees have responsibilities when it comes to moving and handling a patient.

Employers responsibilities include:

- Regular risk assessments.

- Avoiding moving and handling tasks that could result in injury.

- Putting measures in place to reduce risk.

- Assessing risks that cannot be avoided.

- Regular training for staff and providing suitable equipment.

Employees responsibilities include:

- Following the specified systems of work and using the equipment provided.

- Let their employer know of any problems, accidents or possible hazards.

- Ensure their actions don't put themselves or others at risk.

Is Moving and Handling training a legal requirement? Under Manual Handling Regulations, Moving and Handling training is a legal requirement if you require your employees to carry out manual handling activities. As Moving and Handling applies to people, there is an additional emphasis on protecting their dignity and ensuring all steps are taken to prevent or reduce the risk of injury to themselves or the service users.
