Safe Patient Lifting for Hospitals
Ensuring the protection of staff, patients and visitors is vital in a hospital environment and regular moving and handling training is important for the health and safety of all concerned.
The importance of maintaining safety in lifting cannot be underestimated with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) reporting that moving and handling injuries account for 40% of work-related sickness absence in health and social care.
With this in mind, our safe patient lifting 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. We realise that a big part of our responsibility as leaders in our sector is to build awareness about the impact of a musculoskeletal injury.
