Kevin is Chair of National Back Exchange. Kevin is a registered nurse who has been actively involved in promoting excellent manual handling practice since 1992. Having spent many years as the manual handling lead in a large NHS Trust he is now employed by Birmingham City University as part of the team teaching posture, movement and handling. NBE’s vision is “Excellence in all aspects of moving and handling”.
Training is provided to employees in the health and social care sector to reduce the significant impact of MSDs associated with manual handling in their work. At a time when an increasing number of people are being moved and handled in the community by family members and informal carers it is essential that the contribution that this makes to care provision is recognised and adequately supported.
