Manual Handling Refresher for Health Workers

Manual Handling Refresher – Annual Update

The manual handling refresher run by FirstAidPro is designed to serve as an annual update to Manual Handling training. To take part in the course, participants must have previously completed the HLTWHS005 Conduct manual tasks safely qualification.

This course is recommended annually for all staff directly involved in the handling and moving of clients. This includes (but is not limited to) ambulance staff, student nurses (pre-placement), physiotherapists, health and nurse aides, occupational therapists, medical staff, nurses, and people working with the disabled and aged in the community.

Our manual handling course – which is fully accredited and recognised throughout Australia – provides healthcare workers with the specialised skills and knowledge to provide direct care to clients in aged care, health, nursing, or home care contexts. The course has a particular focus on the safety of the worker, the well-being of the client, and the benefit to the wider community.

The course requires no online assessments or e-learning – all assessments are handled directly by the trainer during the refresher course.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia has confirmed that hours spent on the training contribute to Continuing Professional Development.

FirstAidPro is an accredited Australian RTO (#40407), who takes considerable pride in providing high-quality training from friendly, expert instructors at an affordable price.

Both the HLTWHS005 Conduct manual tasks safely course (also known as “Manual Handling”) and the refresher course are conducted at our Brisbane training venue. The facility is equipped with a full range of hoists, hospital beds, slide sheets and other facilities needed to practice and demonstrate manual handling skills safely. With a hands-on approach and plenty of practical examples, our instructors strive to make your training experience enjoyable, informative, and fun.

This course is of particular value to staff in hospitals and residential care roles, including nurses, health workers, support workers and aged care staff. The training is fully compliant with relevant local and national legislation, including the hazardous manual tasks code of practice.
