This organisation recognises that its service users have a range of different mobility and handling needs and that some users may require the use of lifting equipment and manual handling aids, such as hoists. In this respect it is vital for the safety of service users, and for staff, that such equipment is:
subject to appropriate risk assessments
used only by appropriately trained and competent staff
maintained in a safe condition to use and subject to regular inspections by a responsible person
subject to a visual check before use to ensure that there are no obvious defects.
