Throughout the DVD, the implications for pupil health are also explained.
This training resource helps employers comply with Manual Handling Regulations and the requirement to train staff in manual handling and safer lifting.
Lifting and handling are one of the highest risk factors of any working environment. Staff working in education and childcare settngs experience additional risks of cumulative strain injury from low, child-sized working environments. Awkward, unhealthy postures are often adopted (for instance bending over low
tables/sinks, sitting on children’s chairs, twisting at white boards). Repetitive lifting and carrying are unavoidably carried out on a daily basis (be it children, furniture, play equipment or paperwork). Teaching and childcare staff are professional voice users. Interestingly, voice and back health are related as both are dependent on healthy posture. Research shows there is a higher incidence of back and voice strain in education professionals than in the general population.
