Course Overview

Atlantic Training's course on "Safe Lifting in Healthcare Environments: for Medical Personnel"  discusses how lifting and carrying things can affect the back, and how medical personnel can use safe lifting techniques to help them avoid back injuries in a healthcare facility.

We've all experienced back pain at one time or another, and it probably resulted from lifting something incorrectly. Maybe the load was too big or too heavy, or we lifted from an awkward position. But if you want to avoid injuries, you need to make sure that you use your back the "right way".

Topics covered in this course include:

  • The mechanics of safe lifting in a healthcare facility
  • How to "listen" to your back
  • Types of back injuries
  • Preparing to lift something in a way that protects your back
  • The "right way" to lift and carry patients
  • How to keep your back safe when you're lifting "below the waist"
  • …and more.
