The goal of a moving and handling intervention is to ensure the client and worker are safe, the routine is as efficient as it can be and it delivers a quality care routine for the client. Whilst this can involve recommendations of equipment, changes to the environment & changes the task, the last stage is to provide guidance to clients & their carers, on how the routine should take place after our intervention is finished. This can involve training and development of safe work procedures.
This webinar will explore training and safe work procedures under the NDIS. It will explore:

– Our role as OTs in a moving and handling intervention.

– How the NDIS has changed the landscape.

– The legislative requirement under the Work Health and Safety Act (using NSW as an example) for training and safe work procedures.
