Manual Handling Risk Assessment Overview
Manual handling activities are one of the most common hazards across all types of industries. If you work in a shop you may need to carry heavy boxes to and from the store room, if you work in construction you will need to lift materials, and even if you work in an office you may find yourself carrying, pushing or pulling.
Manual handling is also one of the biggest causes of workplace accidents and injuries, so it's very important that a comprehensive manual handling risk assessment is completed before tasks are carried out.
You will need to identify any manual handling tasks that present a risk, introduce appropriate control measures to reduce this risk and write up your findings if you have five or more employees.
This is where our health and safety experts can help you!
