Favourite aspect of being an EDGE trainer... Having the opportunity to meet delegates from diverse backgrounds and helping them to problem solve their moving and handling dilemmas. Sharon also enjoys sharing her knowledge and empowering people to utilise their own experiences and skills.
Top Training Tip... Never place slide sheets on the floor as they will present a serious slip hazard. If demonstrating slide sheets on the bed tuck them firmly under the mattress so you can access them when you want them but they do not risk falling to the ground.
