Code: BH/22/0470 Hoarding Awareness Workshop (EVENT FULL)

Most hoarded properties are ‘cleared out’ by cleaning teams. This leads to greater distress and more intense hoarding activity. Clients with hoarding disorder need understanding and empathy in order to help them to develop new behaviours to cope with their excess belongings. This course gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who hoard.   

This course is aimed at housing staff and social workers, and takes into consideration the knowledge and skills statement for social workers.

Code: BH/22/0745 Safer People Handling Risk Assessor - 2 days

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 require employers to make suitable and sufficient assessments of all manual handling operations and to take appropriate steps to reduce the risk of injury to the lowest level reasonably practicable. This course will provide assessors with the necessary information and skills to undertake assessments of manual handling needs.

Participants will receive an attendance certificate to show that they have received training under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.

This course is for managers and senior staff who will be carrying out manual handling assessments and is open to all adult social care staff across the council and the Independent Voluntary Sector.

The latest Government Guidance is being followed to ensure that face to face training is delivered in the safest possible way to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19 . The attached COVID-19 Risk Assessment Guidance for Training Participants sets out the arrangements and what you are required to do when attending the training course. Please ensure these are read and understood before applying and attending the course.

Delegates can also request a full copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

If you have any concerns about attending this training please contact the Learning and Development team - learning@brighton-hove.gov.uk

Please note: - Access to Montague House for delegates is the wooden gate on Somerset Street. This will be open on the day, and behind the wooden gate delegates will find the back door into the manual handling training room.

Participants must ensure they wear appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable footwear that covers the whole of the foot as you will be actively participating in safer people handling techniques. Open-toed shoes and sandals are not acceptable and you maybe turned away due to health and safety reasons which will then incur a charge.

If you are unable to participate in the practical session you will only receive a certificate of attendance, not a full certificate which assesses your competency and you will have to attend a refresher session at a later date when you are fit and well to have your competency assessed.
