Event description

HLTWHS005 Conduct Manual Tasks Safely Personal Care Workers

This course has a Pre-course study: Students will be required to undertake online pre-course work prior to attending the face-to-face session, due to the course delivery mode.
The pre-course study will need to be completed 48 hours before the date of the face-to-face course.

In every workplace, workers are exposed to day-to-day activities that involve some kind of manual handling, some more hazardous than others. These tasks are a common cause of injury in the workplace, and as such, understanding how to undertake these tasks safely is imperative. Without manual handling training, employees can make mistakes and even suffer serious injury. This is especially true if an employee is around hazardous substances or activities.

This comprehensive training course equips you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to: first, identify potentially hazardous manual tasks and their sources of risks and risk factors. Second, prepare for and apply controls to complete these tasks using manual handling techniques that support safe work practice.​Third, understand the function of the body in movement and performing manual tasks, the importance of posture and positioning of the body, and how to recognise symptoms of an injury and report it.

The skills in this course are applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian/New Zealand standards, and industry codes of practice, such as the Hazardous Manual Tasks code of practice.
