Different groups of healthcare workers run the risk of injuring themselves at work due to heavy lifting and manual patient handling (i.e. lifting, transferring and repositioning patients). Thus, it is important for various departmental safety coordinators, trainers and supervisors and staff to acquire basic knowledge on proper body mechanics and correct techniques in lifting and manual handling of patients. Upon completing the course, they will be able to perform a transfer safely and efficiently.
