The second course this week was another one day Handling People with Special Needs Education refresher workshop, this time for Warmley Park School in Wiltshire. We had five participants for this course, Kim McNamara and Helen Wilshire both from Warmley Park School, they were joined by Amanda Humphreys and Lynne Davies both from Larkrise School also in Wiltshire and Sarah Keirle from Reflect. It was a busy and productive day spent refreshing the Key Trainers on the basic theory and practical behind safe moving and handling and also including risk assessments, safe sling and hoist use and equipment.
