Manual Handling Training and Education

United Physiotherapy Group offers effective staff education (including manual handling training, ergonomic analysis/assessments, risk management, RTW programs) across all industries to achieve best practices and standards. We can provide this education in a number of different ways best suited for the requirements of your organisation. Our training workshops are delivered and monitored by our senior physiotherapists with Certificate IV (Training & Assessment) who understand how to help staff bridge theory into practice.

Manual Handling Training

RACFs are seen as a hot spot for injuries to workers by WorkSafe Victoria. The physical nature of the work predisposes staff to injury, especially if they are performing these tasks with poor manual handling skills.

United Physiotherapy Group offers a range of methods to help staff improve their manual handling skills:

  • Theory presentations to small-medium groups of staff

  • Practical-based work shops with small groups

  • Train the Trainer Program

  • One on One Training

Our Physiotherapists can help you choose the best option for your facility depending on staff numbers and your specific needs.

Falls Prevention & Strength/Balance Training

United Physiotherapy Group can assist RACFs with the prevention of falls for their elderly residents. Our physiotherapists are able to implement effective falls prevention and injury minimisation strategies. Our physiotherapists also work closely with many GPs and other allied health practitioners to improve the way in which falls prevention strategies are implemented.
