Hi Stella,

Well, another policy I hadn't ever thought of! :D Has someone told you that you need this one?

Perhaps you could add a sentence or two to either the staff/health and safety policies you have, or the child protection policy? I'm all for reducing the number of policies we hold, to a manageable amount :o

We do not have a lifting and handling policy either, but we do include advice on lifting and handling in our staff induction pack which we give out to new staff and work experience students etc. I haven't got a copy of this at home (where I am at the moment) I'm afraid. I think we may have bought our lifting and handling advice sheet from an office supplies shop. If you need to write it as a policy you probably need to think about lifting the children as well as equipment - under what circumstances this would be done and how to lift them safely - minimising the risk to you/your staff and the child.
