National Chair


Simon Love


My experience in manual handling began in 1991 delivering manual handling training to care home staff in Leeds. Since then I have trained staff from a wide variety of organisations throughout the UK and abroad.


Although I still undertake training of care staff within care homes the scope of my manual handling experience has developed to having organisational and strategic responsibilities.


I regularly update and consolidate my professional development by attending conferences, being chairman of the Yorkshire Branch of the National Back Exchange (YBE) for 5 yers,being an active member of the product review panel of National Back Exchange (NBE) for 4 years, being on the Executive committee for the past 2 years and fulfilling all the requirements of my CPD to maintain my Advanced Members status within NBE.


I have regularly run workshops and been plenary  speaker at conferences including the NBE, DLF and AfPP over the past 7 years.


I feel I have the grounding of continuing to train staff at the sharp end,understanding the problems,issues and situations they face on a daily basis and yet have experience and understanding og the bigger picture at an organisational level.
