Safe Resident Handling

Did You Know?

Musculoskeletal injuries make up the highest percentage of injuries in the continuing care sector.

Course Description

In Safe Resident Handling, you will receive best-practice training for safe handling and musculoskeletal injury prevention designed specifically for long-term care staff.
