If you're a family carer looking after someone with an illness or disability, you may need to help them move around. It's essential that you know about safe moving and handling so you don't hurt yourself or the person you care for.
The most common injuries carers experience are back injuries. Injuring your back will limit your mobility and ability to care for someone, and it could take a long time to recover. Lifting someone incorrectly can also damage fragile skin, cause shoulder and neck injuries, increase existing breathing difficulties or cause bruising or cuts.
Part A is Moving and Lifting Safely.
