An essential manual handling training that covers the workplace basics (useful!) as well as NDIS-specific techniques (very useful!).

Why take this course?

The stats are in – manual handling incidents are one of the most common causes of injury to Support Workers. And since most generic manual handling courses focus on office-based risks (lifting boxes, anyone?) we recognised the need for an NDIS-specific module.

Our NDIS Manual Handling Training is an essential eLearning for Support Workers (and, well, anyone who works in the sector). It goes beyond workplace basics and provides practical advice for those working within the NDIS, especially Support Workers who often find themselves physically supporting a person in their day-to-day role.

By the end, learners will be equipped with appropriate handling techniques and strategies to reduce the risk of injury, and managers will get peace of mind that their staff are taking care of themselves on the frontline.

What you’ll gain

Across 45 minutes, we’ll cover:

  • How to involve the person you’re supporting and how that can help to reduce risks

  • What are the common manual handling risks? And how can you prevent manual handling injuries?

  • How to use manual handling principles to keep both you and the person you’re supporting safe

  • Helpful equipment and how it can help you to support people to move

  • Strategies and techniques for specific manual handling tasks

  • What to do if things go wrong

*This module provides a theoretical foundation for manual handling. It does not include a formal assessment of the learner's comprehension of the content or ability to apply it in practice

Who’s it for?

  • Support Workers

  • Anyone working within the NDIS sector

What’s included?

  • 45 minute eLearning

  • Certificate of completion
