Lifting & handling are high risk factors in any working environment. Staff working in education & childcare settings experience additional risks of cumulative strain injury from low, child-sized working environments.
Awkward, unhealthy postures are often adopted (for instance bending over low tables/sinks, sitting on children’s chairs, twisting at white boards). Repetitive lifting & carrying are unavoidably carried out on a daily basis (be it with children, furniture, play equipment or paperwork).
Teaching & childcare staff are professional voice users. Interestingly, voice & back health are related as both are dependent on healthy posture. Research shows there is a higher incidence of back & voice strain in education professionals than in the general population.
This original DVD, especially developed for those working in education by Chartered Physiotherapist, Lorna Taylor at JollyBack & Vocal Coaches, Leon Trayman & Gemma Boaden at Tempervox, provides key information & practical tips to improve back & vocal health & promotes staff safety - helping prevent long & short term injuries & reduce sickness absence.
Throughout the DVD, the implications for pupil health are also explained.
