Wexford – Manual Handling Course
22 October 2015
Wexford Civil Defence ran a Manual Handling & People Moving Course on the weekend of the 17th of October attended by volunteers from Wexford, New Ross and Gorey. The course covered manual handling and skills for people working with patients. Training covered the use of slide sheets, patient slides, evacuation stair chairs, ambulance lift and stretchers. The skills learned allow our volunteers to work safely with patients that have limited or no mobility requiring transport from community events covered by Civil Defenced.
