Manual Handling & Ergonomic Risk Assessment
Assessing your Manual Handling Tasks with Best Practice & Realistic Risk Reduction Solutions
Short of time to carry out Manual Handling Risk Assessments & write management reports?
Do you have awkward & high risk manual handling tasks (like some of the tasks shown in left images) that are causing Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) & manual handling lost time accidents?
Want to mechanise certain tasks but struggling to convince Directors?
Looking for an external 2nd opinion on manual handling risk reduction?
From the Manual Handling Operations Regulations:
When looking at an operation consider the task, the individual capability, the load and the environment it takes place, together with other factors including psychosocial factors and the relationship between them.
What do I need to do?
Avoid the need for hazardous manual handling, ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’;
Assess the risk of injury from any hazardous manual handling that can’t be avoided;
Reduce the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling, ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’.
