In 2012 ISO published their first techincal report with specific focus on safe patient handling.
The ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) technical report ISO/TR 12296:2012 Ergonomics — manual handling of people in the healthcare sector, describes the multifunctional approach to patient handling including: methods and guidelines for risk evaluation, organizational aspects, criteria for the choice and use of equipment, training, buildings and environment in relation to risk estimation, and evaluation of patient handling interventions.
The technical report refers to the use of Mobility Gallery and the Care Thermometer developed by ArjoHuntleigh. The publication provides strong evidence for safe patient handling intervention with a good base for future guidelines and legislations.
To support the technical report, ArjoHuntleigh has produced an easy to read edited summary, which is available for you to download by clicking here.
The full ISO/TR 12296:2012 is available for purchase via the ISO website.
