Abstract:
A practical understanding of the law relating to the lifting and handling of disabled and older people is essential not only for health and social care staff and managers in the statutory and voluntary sectors but for all those involved in 'hands-on' care of patients, clients and pupils. Aims to present an accessible overview of the United Kingdom's manual handling case law and the legal implications and practical issues involved. Provides a summary of key legislation in England, Wales and Scotland. It deals with the issue of manual handling in the wider contexts of health and safety legislation, and of community care and NHS legislation. The main body of the book is in A-Z format and is fully cross-referenced, allowing for quick access to the information needed. Topics covered include guidelines on health and safety, including back care; handling of children in schools; policy and procedure coordination within and between organizations; and equipment provision
