Q: Describe what health and safety factors need to be taken into account when moving and positioning individuals.
A: What you need to know In health and social care services, moving and handling injuries account for 40% of work-related sickness absence. [ Around 5000 moving and handling injuries are reported each year in health services and around 2000 in social care. Moving and handling is a key part of the working day for most employees; from moving of equipment, laundry, catering, supplies or waste to
assisting residents in moving. Over 50% of injuries arise from the moving and handling of people. Poor moving and handling practice can lead to: back pain and musculoskeletal disorders, which can lead to inability to work moving and handling accidents – which can injure both the person being moved and the employee discomfort and a lack of dignity for the person being moved You must take action to prevent or minimise the risk of injury. ]
