Care, Health and NHS

SAFER HANDLING provide the right training and support to ensure that staff at all levels have the knowledge and skills to lawfully and effectively manage difficult situations.  This enables them to feel safe, calm and in control within their working environment. Our trainers have excellent sector-specific knowledge and experience. They are fully aware of the differing needs and risks at all levels and of the relevant duty of care and legislative requirements set by the Care Quality Commission, the NHS, NICE, MIND and other regulatory bodies and RRN.

Courses and services in this sector include violence and aggression audits, legal briefings on the use of force with vulnerable adults and children, restraint reduction, physical intervention, positive behaviour support, breakaway, disengagement, and managing challenging behaviours. The focus of our training is always on de-escalating situations; however it is important for staff to know how to safely and effectively intervene physically where necessary in order to prevent a greater harm from occurring. We offer a range of accreditation, including nationally recognised qualifications.

At Safer Handling we believe that protecting staff and client groups is paramount and that training is vital for legal compliance and peace of mind. The sole use for physical intervention is to prevent a greater harm from occurring – a belief supported in law and by statutory bodies.

Introducing The Pobroll®
A calming, waterproof, bed-bathing wrap
Pobroll logo with AS.jpg
A soft and warm bed bathing wrap promoting dignified and respectful care while protecting the bed linen. Designed to enhance sensory comfort, the Pobroll® soothes distressed individuals and offers a gentler alternative to "safe holding" during essential care tasks when consent cannot be obtained. Proven to reduce agitation and distress.

This innovative wrap features two layers of premium, soft

terry-cotton with a highly effective impermeable material sandwiched  in between, to guarantee complete waterproofing to keep the linen and bed dry during the Pobroll® bed bath.

Say goodbye to cumbersome and messy bed baths, and say hello to the ease and comfort of the Pobroll®
