Product Overview
 
 
Moving and Handling of people is a mandatory course for adults’ social care workers involved in moving people and objects. The law requires this training to be undertaken and for workers to refresh every two years. Back injury is one of the major contributors towards sick leave and it is critical that people are moving safely and within the law to avoid injury to themselves, individuals they are moving or to anyone else.

We have created this online assessment based on the mandatory outcomes required in the Foundation and Refresher training and Skills for Care’s adult social care induction standards 8.3 Moving and positioning. The outcomes have been designed by qualified Moving and Handling Instructors who were also involved in writing and testing the questions and answers.

Moving and handling training is made up of two main elements - theory and practical. By assessing workers’ knowledge on the theory and on how they intend to put this into practice, you can determine whether their knowledge meets the outcomes required

To complement the online assessments and achieve the practice element, the manager or designated trained person should check, through several observations in the workplace, that the individual is putting the knowledge into practice. This method could save a great deal of time and money usually spent on training courses and cover staff
