Hi, Does anyone know where I can access a good flow chart with hoist instructions/ sling selection.
Also I’m keen to get a video/youtube clip for staff to watch.
We had a terrible incident recently with a sling hoist, caused by inappropriate sling selection so I’m updating the training resources.

I heard of a nurse using the wrong sling so I created a poster to go on all hoists that require the clip on slings. I will send you the poster. The ACC Moving and Handling People Guidelines have step by step procedures which you could copy. they also have videos, not sure if there is one on sling selection though. Kate Edmond

I found a handout written by Julia Love from NBE and relooked to give you a link and it only found this version- http://www.nationalbackexchange.org/files/training_guidelines/hoisting_guidelines.pdf
But it does have a flow chart that may be helpful? Cheers

Do any organisations have any Standard Operating Procedures that have been developed for the range of manual handling equipment used in their healthcare facilities? We are trying to develop our resources for training and education and realise that we do not have any SOPs. Thanks very much for any help or resources.
