Moving and Assisting with Hoist Refresher

This half day refresher course is for staff that have previously done moving and assisting with hoist training and requires their yearly updated certificate. The course gives delegates the opportunity to learn and demonstrate a variety of moving and handling practices, including the use of scenario based learning.  

This one day refresher course is essential for anyone working with individuals who require assistance with moving and covers:

  • The theory of Moving and Repositioning including relevant legislation, employer/employee responsibilities, risk assessment, handling plans, functions of the spine and what could go wrong, unsafe moves and consequences of using.
  • Practical session using mobile hoists including checking the hoist for service history, a visual check before use, checking sling for wear and tear and making sure it is the correct sling for the individual, slide sheets, ETAC slide sheets, transfer belts if appropriate to care setting and transfer boards if appropriate, (if in house then equipment used will be what is supplied by customer).

    Please note, practical footwear must be worn for this training.
