Lifting Safely to Prevent Injury
OVERVIEW:Statistics show that care providers in long term care facilities are twice as likely to suffer an on-the-job injury than workers in other industries. Adding to the risks is the fact that you are not just lifting items that remain inert as you move them, but human beings, who are often frail. This program will briefly introduce the importance of mobility assistance for residents, review the body mechanics involved in the process of lifting safely, and offer several general rules to keep in mind when you approach any lifting task. By paying attention to safe lifting techniques at all times, you can help avoid injury to yourself and to residents.
Includes program and 20 CE workbooks. Additional workbooks - $1.50 each with minimum purchase of 20.
