Moving and Handling of People Training Courses

Solutions Training offer a variety of courses to ensure your staff are trained to a high standard in moving and handling people in the course of their work. We understand the huge importance to your organisation of avoiding injury to your staff and that the people being moved are done so in a safe, comfortable and dignified manner in accordance with latest best practise.

How does it work?

We don’t sell generic off the shelf courses. We work with our clients to deliver the best quality training at the most cost-effective price.

For every client we tailor the blend of learning to your needs and ensure you can retain the knowledge we impart. That’s the true value of a good training partner.

We use our huge knowledge and experience of your sector to produce customised, sector-specific programmes that could be met by training your trainers to train your own staff (educationally accredited Level 3 award applies) or directly skilling your staff, either by instructor led training or a blend of “online for theory” and instructor led. Talk to us today and we will help you identify the most cost effective strategy that works for you.

Don't take our word for it

The Solutions team was comprised of former NHS training professionals with community experience gained in nursing, physiotherapy and ambulance settings. All trainers had adult teaching / training qualifications as well as manual handling qualifications and membership of the National Back Exchange. Their backgrounds and qualifications enabled them to relate directly to the Greenwich needs and identify practical answers to the local manual handling issues.
