Wheelchair Safety Course: Courses & Programs
Our Wheelchair Safety Training is ideal for Drivers and Passenger Assistants but also staff who will work specifically with the wheelchair user. The course is delivered by our trainers who have many years of experience in working with different types of equipment and will be able to draw on that experience to advise on all matters related to the safe transportation of wheelchair and Pavement Scooter users.
This course covers everything we need to know before and during the transportation of Wheelchair users and Pavement Scooters and covers:
Passenger Safety Plans
Advice for staff on what they need to consider when boarding and alighting with wheelchair users
How to safely use a passenger lift
How to safely use a ramp including use of a winch
How to safely use different types of Tie-Down equipment
Safe evacuation of wheelchair users during a vehicle fire
Practical skills assessments
It involves a theory session to prepare for the practical work and will cover case studies of things that can go wrong when transporting wheelchair users.
After completing the course, the organisation is issued with a comprehensive manual with detailed information of Risk Assessments, Passenger Safety Plans, Tie down equipment, Passenger Lifts, Ramps, a winch, what to do in an emergency, evacuating a wheelchair user and much more.
Each candidate will be issued with a certificate of completion stating evidence of safe practice during practical assessments.
