Risk Assessment

Personal Care Consultants offers a Risk Assessment and Manual Handling Risk Assessment service in the North West of England and North Wales.

Our team of Manual Handling Risk Assessors can offer a swift response to urgent referrals, particularly for clients awaiting discharge from hospital. Our expertise also means that our assessors can assist in the most complex and challenging situations and find safe, practical and client focussed solutions to manual handling issues.

Our Risk Management Team is made up of Occupational Therapists and Nurses. This varied background gives our team a solutions focussed approach being able to offer clients, carers and staff alike advice, training and suggestions in how to assist clients most effectively while retaining dignity and choice. We have recently begun to provide single handed care risk assessment services. Once a service user has been identified as a potential suitable candidate for single handed care, a specific single handed care risk assessment can be carried out. This can take place at hospital, respite care or the client’s own home and will facilitate the safe provision of single handed care.

Personal Care Consultants prides itself on the up to date knowledge of our assessors who are members of both the Local and National Back Exchange and keep themselves up to speed with new developments and equipment within the field.

We also offer a risk assessment service for organisations who find that it is necessary to carry out tasks that place people at potential risk of hazard, injury or harm. The risk assessment process is designed to identify potential risks of injury, and using a problem solving approach, provide practical actions and solutions that protect people from those risks.
