All Wales Manual Handling Passport Scheme
The All Wales Manual Handling Passport Scheme was originally developed by Health Professionals within the NHS Trusts in Wales to ensure high standards and consistency in Manual Handling.
We offer the HABC Level 2 Award in moving people safely and is mapped against the All Wales Passport Scheme and in partnership with the All Wales Trust Manual Handling Advisors’ Group and the Health and Safety Executive. The course is designed to reduce manual handling related staff injuries and meet the requirements of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations.
Benefits of the Course
By attending this course delegates will be provided with the most up to date information relating to moving and handling of people. All staff within the health and social care sector involved in moving and handling people should have this qualification.
