We at Aegis Care Solutions recognise the value of training in developing a more experienced and skilled workforce, which is why we offer many training opportunities for staff to enhance their knowledge and understanding. We believe that the more confident in their skills our employees are, the better our clients’ experiences will be.

We also offer many more specialised courses depending on your individual career development needs.
Our in-house training gives the assurance that the quality and safety of our services leads to clients’ wellbeing.
We believe that people learn best when they’re engaged with training activities. The classroom environment provides the important “human touch,” which is often missing in technology-based training.
Group interaction enhances learning, as employees learn from one another as well as from the trainer. The group setting also teaches employees how to interact with one another in a professional, productive and cooperative way, which is something that other forms of training often don’t provide.
Other benefits of in-house training are:
a more focused training environment
reduced travel time,

MANUAL HANDLING TRAINING
As an employer, you need to protect employees from the risk of injury through manual handling tasks in the workplace. It will also be useful to employees and their representatives.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, as amended in 2002 (‘the Regulations’) apply to a wide range of manual handling activities, including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying. The load may be either animate, such as a person or an animal, or inanimate, such as a box or a trolley.
Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work. It can cause work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which account for over a third of all workplace injuries.
Manual handling injuries can happen anywhere people work, including farms, building sites, factories, offices, warehouses, hospitals, banks, laboratories, and while making deliveries.
