Paid carers ?
Health and Safety Act 1974 ... provisions thereof :

( Some would say " 45 years worth of the b******* obvious ! " )
For once , there should NOT be a post code lottery in their interpretation.
Family / kinship carers ?
Are NOT covered by said Act ... more a case of trail and error / common sense ... for example , 8 stone carer , 16 stone caree.
There is guidance out there for family carers ... " How to do XYZ " ... a SEARCH of the Internet will reveal.
In addition . most gp surgeries ... just ask ... most are only too willing.
You Tube ... if you prefer videos , why not search for , say , wheelchair lifting ???
During my ten year stretch ... as a lone
carer ... wheelchairs / lifting ... I probably broke every rule in the book but ... we coped without damage to my caree ... oh , mustn't forget ... me ... beyond my pride.
Fitting a V8 when pushing a caree in a wheelchair uphill would also come in handy ?
