Safe Patient Lifting
Manual handling regulations and correct manual handling techniques, specifically for lifting fallen people from the floor, are a daily challenge for many who work in a healthcare environment. It’s the repetitive nature of lifting that causes musculoskeletal injury and high rates of work-related sickness among healthcare professionals due to patient lifting injuries is a global problem. In the UK, HSE estimate 1.5 million days are lost to work related musculoskeletal injury annually.
The chance of an injury to a healthcare worker reduces by up to 41% when a lifting device is readily available.
Mangar works directly with the social care workforce to reduce staff sickness and associated costs, while at the same time encouraging greater staff productivity during a fall.
We are proud of our relationship with the emergency services and work on a number of projects to ensure paramedics and healthcare professionals have the right moving handling equipment to reduce the risk of workplace injury.
Our products are used on medical wards to enable healthcare professionals to come to the aid of a patient without delay and without putting themselves at risk.
Here at Mangar we work closely with dealers to supply a range of assistive technology equipment for independent living at easy, convenient locations.
