Seminar Title: Doing a moving and handling risk assessment - no wizardry required

This session aims to reassure delegates that despite being a legal requirement, a risk assessment in moving and handling is not an exercise in rules and does not require a degree. Delegates will learn that assessment should be based on realistic outcomes, practical considerations, and human factors, including common sense. The session will cover the reasons for doing an assessment and then will use worked examples to illustrate the points that have been identified. The layout of risk assessment documentation will also be discussed with examples, along with who, what when, why and where. Learning outcomes will include appreciation of the legal principles governing assessment, understanding the need for documentation and awareness of the flexibility of an
assessment associated with its individual nature.

Moving & Handling Theatre 8, 12:00 - 12:45, Thursday 26th.
