Moving and Handling of People Training
Osteopaths For Industry is a leading UK provider of specialist moving and handling of people training courses, suitable for carers and health and social care.
Moving and Handling of people is a complex area with a very high risk of injury. Training requires a specialist approach & clinical expertise in order to be truly effective. OFI provides Moving and Handling Training, and related consultancy services, to a wide variety of organisations including hospitals, therapy centres, residential, day centres, local authorities, home care and school facilities.
What are the benefits of Moving and Handling training with OFI?
OFI has some of the very best and most experienced trainers in the business.
Our unique selling point is that ALL of our trainers are qualified (and experienced) Osteopaths or Physiotherapists. This provides them with an intricate understanding of the human body and its musculoskeletal systems.
We provide specialist Moving and Handling training in areas that are often considered more challenging, and where a customised training solution is required due to the specific nature of the moving and handling activities. For example, the handling of children or people with cognitive and physical disabilities.
Our in-house courses can be customised to meet your specific requirements – we don’t believe in “one-size fits-all” training courses!
In addition, you will have priority access to our specialist trainers for advice on any Moving and Handling issues that may arise following your training course, and your organisation will have access to our free online training tutorials and videos.
Our Unique Approach
Moving and Handling Training is a demanding area of Health and Safety, requiring medical and clinical knowledge as well as practical application. Our specialist knowledge of Musculoskeletal Disorders distinguishes us from ‘generalist’ Health and Safety providers, and all of our Instructors are experienced Osteopaths or Physiotherapists with experience in all sectors of industry. Years of professional training and clinical experience makes our Instructor team ideally placed to deliver effective moving and handling practical skills training. Our team’s professional background enables them to explain the ‘Why behind the How’ of using good handling technique which increases the effectiveness of training.
