People Handling Consultancy
Safe patient or client handling in the health and social care sectors presents many challenges for management and for employees.
Employees in the health and social care sectors must handle patients or clients who have diverse care and rehabilitation needs. Employees may be exposed to a risk of injury, particularly back injury from these handling tasks.
OPS consultants have many years experience assisting organisations to develop and implement relevant policies and handling plans, which consider the care of the patient/client and the health and safety of the employees, particularly for complex handling tasks.
The clinical background of OPS consultants, combined with their knowledge and experience in the area of safer handling means that they are ideally suited to assist organisations with policy development, risk assessments and the development of handling plans/protocols for safer handling in patient care.
