Ideally, when you are putting someone in a wheelchair, you have to make sure it fits the person. Having a wheelchair too big or too small will not give enough support to the person and it can be uncomfortable. 

Before letting someone get into a wheelchair you must ensure;

The grippers on the wheelchair are secure

The tyres are nice and firm 

The brakes are working and how they operate 

The footplates are working 

Make sure the brakes are on before letting someone sit in the wheelchair

Safety belts are fastened if the wheelchair has them

There are thousands of different wheelchairs available so it is ideal to learn how to use the wheelchair, in your workplace.
