Assignment 3
Manual Handling Lesson
The objective of this lesson was to bring about a fresh approach of how to use the correct manual handling techniques wherever applicable at the workplace to minimise injury and maximise safe handling awareness.
I used my background as a qualified personal trainer and sports therapist to demonstrate effective warm up routines prior to work and correct postural alignment whilst lifting. This was backed up with a theory session using a power point presentation, a hand out for further reading and a DVD.
I took our spinal aid and showed the delegates how the spine moves and how it is affected by lifting movements also incorporating the physiological shape ...view middle of the document...

I experienced one delegate whose first language was not English and therefore if I had looked at the application forms more thoroughly, then I would have been prepared more to deal with this better. In future, I will be far more thorough in my preparation and planning to cater for this. I also found that because of my fitness qualifications, I used more advanced jargon than was necessary and lost the delegates at some points throughout. I need to monitor my language and keep to the basics at all times through the lesson plan
I found that my timing was shortened due to the limited amount of aids I had at my disposal and in order to have a full and proper programme delivered to the delegates, I will ensure that there are a greater variety of lifting aids with me to flush out the lesson plan and make it far more engaging

How I could I extend this into a full teaching session
To enable me to produce a full programme, I need to:

1. Identify needs: this can be done through working with sales or contacting organisations directly to establish learning criteria
2. I would then need to identify the teaching approaches to be used to ensure an engaging programme
3. I also need to determine the types of assessment to be used, this could include both formative and summative assessment.
4. The finally I need to determine what records need to be produced and kept to help with further evaluation.

I could incorporate this manual handling session into a Banksman Slinger with Manual Handling Programme. Manual handling is an important part of the banksman slinger qualification simply because of the necessity to bend and lift to enable them to perform the functional aspects of their job. Due to adverse working conditions both offshore and on and heavy lifting equipment and accessories needing attached consistently, manual handling awareness would be a complimentary benefit training implemented into this skillset.
This session could easily become part of a wider teaching programme to include
1. Relevant legislation that would begin with Banksman Slinging and then incorporate the Manual Handling legislation at the end of the main body regulations/legislation theory
2. Ask all students to sign off on a DISCLAIMER form after ascertaining that no-one had medical difficulties in performing functional tasks such as bending down, lifting and carrying weights of gender allocation.
3. Introduction of lifting accessories and the importance to carry out pre and post checks
4. Demonstrate how to manually handle lifting accessories and the importance of considering two man lifts
5. Introduction of manual handling aids e.g. sack barrows, trolleys, mini cranes
6. Introduction of the physical effects on these accessories from corrosion, cuts tears and direct heat, all the attributes of misuse.
7. Maintenance techniques on all associated accessories and manufacturer guidance on best practice
8. Lift plan and crane lift...
