Produced by National Back Exchange, the advice in this publication is intended as a straightforward guide for Manual Handling Practitioners and Employers. It is not compulsory, but is offered as an example of good practice. The book provides readers with information; on possible development pathways for a Manual Handling Practitioner working at different levels; Competency requirements for an Advisory and Training service; and the requirements of Manual Handling Education and Training Service. While there is a focus on larger organisations (particularly the National Health Service) the recommendations are equally valid for smaller organisations and or those working as independent Manual Handling Practitioners.
This publication is a must for anyone commissioning or providing a Manual Handling Service.
