WINING & DINING IN MANCHESTER
Wind down after your Moving & Handling training days by checking out some of Manchester's truly unique bars and restaurants.
Manchester's dining scene caters to every appetite and budget with plenty of unique restaurants to choose from. It has some of the best places to eat in the North from fine dining in the city centre, to quirky café-bars in Ancoats and the Northern Quarter.
Use this website as a guide to choosing where to eat in the Northern Quarter which is only a stones throw from the training venue. Our personal favourite is the delicious Pie & Ale Restaurant located on 47 Lever Street.
THE TRAINING VENUE
Onsite, there is plenty of room in our training room for both the theory part of the course and the practical sessions which form most of the course. Attendees will be out of their chairs learning practical techniques and transfers rather than being talked at.
For your well deserved breaks there are plentiful hot drinks and chilled water provided throughout the day. If you don't want to bring your own lunch there are several cafes within a 2 minute walk of Redbank House.
Redbank House has a large range of moving & handling equipment and handling aids to practise with such as a mobile hoist, a profiling bed, a standing hoist, a ceiling track hoist, wheelchairs, a banana board, a leg lifter, a bed lever, a bed ladder, a range of slings and slide sheets etc.
Having a large range of quality equipment to hand helps you practise for delivering training with all types of common moving & handling equipment that you will come across in practice. Sometimes attendees aren’t aware of certain equipment and handling aids, and exposure to it on our Course enables them to suggest equipment and handling aid strategies to make improvements to moving & handling in the workplace.
We look forward to seeing you soon at our fully equipped training venue in Manchester.
