All Wales Manual Handling Passport


The All Wales Passport scheme in Manual Handling was originally developed in 2003 by Health and Safety professionals within the NHS Trusts in Wales, to ensure high standards and consistency of manual handling within the NHS in Wales. The scheme has now been adopted as the standard for manual handling in Wales. An advantage of the scheme is that it enables carers to transfer their skills in moving and handling from one organisation/institution to another.
