The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) has announced its first CPD workshop for the upcoming Moving and Handling People 2022 conference.
Training consultant Ben Salmen (pictured) will host the ‘Risky Business’ Workshop as part of the programme, which will run from 22 to 23 February.
The workshop aims to look at a range of considerations throughout the risk assessment journey from hazard spotting and selecting appropriate solutions to implementing control measures and appropriate recording.
The session will use collaborative working and problem solving to help de-mystify risk assessment and allow you to build upon your experience and inform future practice.
Host Ben Salmen began his career in the care industry as a home carer and has experience of direct care delivery across older people’s services, physical and learning disabilities services and disabled children’s services.
After time, as a manual handling advisor, he moved into training delivery and has now been operating in this field for over 12 years.
Salmen has a PGDip in Back Care Management from Loughborough University and additional Health and Safety qualifications.
With the theme of ‘Tomorrow’s World’, the Moving and Handling People 2022 conference will be hosted at De Vere Beaumont Estate, near Heathrow Airport.
