Level 2 Award in Moving People Safely (QCF) - 2 days

Level 2 Award in Moving People Safely (QCF)Description
The Level 2 Award in Moving People Safely is intended as a further development qualification for those working in areas where the assistance and movement of people is a prerequisite part of their role. The qualification is underpinned by the safe principles of moving and handling but recognises the special skills required when assisting and moving people. The qualification is suitable for new starters in organisations where the movement and assistance of people is a key role as well as being suitable for refresher training.

Candidates gaining this qualification will understand that any moving and handling must be carried out correctly and recognise its importance in ensuring a safer working environment for all.

A minimum of 20 contact hours (2 days) in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.

A range of subjects are covered including:

  • Understanding the reasons for safe manual handling
  • Understanding how manual handling assessments contribute to improving health and safety
  • Understanding the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements associated with manual handling safety
  • Being able to apply safe manual handling principles

Each unit of this qualification is assessed in two parts.

Part one tests learners' knowledge on the subject and is assessed by a 30-minute 15 question multiple-choice examination.

Successful learners must achieve at least 10 out of 15 on each test to pass this element of the qualification.

Part two is a competency-based assessment carried out by the nominated tutor.

Learners must practically demonstrate the application of the correct techniques as indicated within the learning outcomes of the unit.

PLEASE NOTE: Practical assessment for this course WILL include lifting and turning. Whilst the emphasis on this course is moving safely rather than strength, there is a small risk of injury and learners will be asked to disclose any injuries and sign to confirm their understanding of the risk.
