Abstract:
Helps minimise manual handling risks to care workers and care service clients. The guidance focuses on physical risk to worker and client, but also takes account of the wider risks to the client of loss of independence and automy if they are unassisted or badly assisted. It contains 27 case studies of real situations and offers suggestions for developing safer handling practices. Case studies include assisting into and out of bed and changing position in bed, assisting into and out of the bath, using the toilet, moving around the house, managing the stairs, and assisting into and out of the car.
