Postponed: Safe Client Handling
April 1 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Are you a home care or community health support worker, but don’t know the safest practices when it comes to handling your clients? Are you aware of the most current safe handling methods? Do you have the proper knowledge and tools to keep yourself safe and free from injury while caring for your clients? Do you want your staff to have the most current practices related to safe client handling?
Musculoskeletal injuries are the leading type of injury for home care and community health support workers. These types of injuries are frequently caused by overexertion, whether that be from sustained or awkward posture, pushing and/or pulling of equipment, or during client care.
We can help reduce your risk of injury while at work!
SafeCare BC’s Safe Client Handling course was specifically designed for home care and community health support workers and will provide participants with the leading practices to prevent injuries from overexertion when working in the home care environment.
Those who would benefit most from the Safe Client Handling program are:
- Home care and community health support workers who provide direct care to clients,
Supervisors who work with those providing direct client care and who would like to understand what safe work practices look like,
- Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee members who want to learn more about current and leading practices in safe handling.
