The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) and the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992) will be discussed and their relevance to the assessment of babies and children needing assistance when moving or being moved. Principles of load assessment will be introduced.


Time will be devoted to practical work, with demonstration of moving children in a variety of care settings. Putting young children into standard equipment such as pushchair, chairs and cots will be practised and use of other equipment discussed, including problems associated with working at low levels. If required, positioning babies and young children into car seats can be included. Discussion of stacking/accessing larger pieces of equipment such as bicycles and outdoor will also be covered.
