British Canoeing Awarding Body is pleased to share the Manual Handling for Paddlesport eLearning which covers different types of manual handling, how we can consider and manage risk and shows the steps we ceingawarding.org.uk/resource/manual-handling-elearnian take when manual handling to better protect our bodies.
Throughout paddlesport, there are many occasions when we are lifting, carrying and moving craft, as well as performing rescues. It’s essential we reflect on current practice and consider whether we are putting ourselves and others in potential danger of damaging joints and muscles, particularly when moving or lifting equipment or people.
We can be at risk of injury from poor manual handling, whether working in paddlesport or as a recreational paddler, so this eLearning is for anyone new to the topic looking for actionable tips.
The eLearning is FREE and will count as 5 CPD points for Instructors, Coaches, Leaders and Guides.
