Use of Hoists by Carers – Essential Guidance

There has been another recent incident where there was significant risk of injury to the individual being hoisted when a fixing became detached from the top of a mobile hoist unit.

There have also been several earlier incidents where the lifting tape became seriously frayed and entangled within the lifting motor.

Both incidents above were reported to the MHRA and fully investigated by the manufacturers. No fault was found with the equipment in either case. The faults were deemed to be due to “unintentional misuse / user error“.
