Ensure you have training at your workplace in the brand of hoist used, as all hoists are different in the way they work. 

When attaching a the sling to the hoist, whatever you do one side you must do the exact same thing to the other. If you are working as a team and there is another carer, communication is extremely important. 

When using any hoist you need to ensure that you are trained to use the brand that you have in your workplace. If in any doubt, please ask your manager.
