Manual Handling tasks involve the moving, lifting, carrying, lowering, pushing and pulling of a load. Incorrect manual handling can lead to a wide range of musculo-skeletal injuries and upper-limb disorders (ULDs).
In order to prevent manual handling injuries, risk assessment should be your first consideration.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (amended 2002) require you, as an employer, to assess the manual handling risks that your staff may face in the workplace as part of your overall health and safety policy.
Our Manual Handling Risk Assessments depend on the type of business you are, the number and size of the buildings and the number of occupiers.
