Are you keeping safe at work?

We’ve teamed up with Physiotherapist and Moving and Handling trainer Rebecca Washbourn from On the Go Physio for our next Cubro CoLabs webinar. We’ll be discussing moving and handling practices to help keep you safe at work.

The Moving and Handling People Guidelines1 states that “injuries to healthcare staff and their associated costs are substantial in New Zealand... carers and health assistants have the highest risk of injuries, as their jobs require frequent client transferring and repositioning… carers performing high rates of client moving and handling each day are much more likely to report back pain.” Repositioning and transferring clients are the most physically demanding of tasks. Is your workplace using best practices to protect you and your colleagues from the risks involved?

Our guest speaker, Rebecca is passionate about implementing and sharing her knowledge on strategies and processes that support staff and clinicians to make safe and clinically appropriate decisions related to patient handling. During this webinar, she will share practical examples so you can confidently apply a best practice approach in your own healthcare environment.

The webinar has been crafted to clinical teams in Hospital, Aged Care and Community environments. If you're unable to join us online on 19th April at 2pm, an on-demand version of the webinar will be made available after the event.

Rebecca will be available following the presentation to answer any questions or challenges your experiencing. Certificates will be issues to all those who attend, to go towards your CPD.
