Learn How to Avoid Common Healthcare Workplace Injuries in Melbourne with a Manual Handling Course from the Job Training Institute

Far and away the most common injuries seen among healthcare workers are repetitive strains and back problems. While most medical students may not consider the physical demands of working in healthcare, there is a great deal of manual labour involved, mainly related to the moving of equipment and patients. To facilitate the avoidance and reduction of these injuries, there is a nationally recognised program from the health training package that healthcare workers can take. At the Job Training Institute, we offer this manual handling course in Melbourne at both our Dandenong and Sunshine campuses. For one all-inclusive fee of $150, pupils will receive the safety education they need while also receiving a statement of attainment upon completion. Not only does completion of this course look good to current and potential employers, but it will keep you safe at work, too!

No prerequisites are necessary to take our manual handling course in Melbourne. For over five hours, one of our accredited and experienced instructors will educate you on safe routines and procedures that can prevent injury when properly observed. Whether it is how to safely move heavy medical equipment or boxes without causing back strains, or how to safely move a patient from a wheelchair to a bed, our course covers everything you need to know. Upon completion, you will receive your attainment statement for your records.
