Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992

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?

  1. Avoid the need for hazardous manual handling, ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’;

  2. Assess the risk of injury from any hazardous manual handling that can’t be avoided;

  3. Reduce the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling, ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’.

The 1 Day Manual Handling Risk Assessor Course was a success and I think we all got a lot from it. Martyn Langton was a good tutor and pitched his delivery just right.

The group were very complimentary of the 1 Day Manual Handling Risk Assessor Course saying they 'thoroughly enjoyed the course yesterday' and 'the content was very informative'. Also they were very complimentary of the Instructor Paul Henaghan who delivered the training, saying his style of training was really good which makes all the difference.

Tip 17 - Open your Eagle Eyes

Here are a couple of Tip 17 snippets from Gareth Milner's Sorry! We're Closed (recorded by our Voiceover Artist Sean Antony to the left) ...

'' Let’s look at an example of where I used my Eagle eyes ... as they were already open. I’m in a Salad Factory. The task I observe involves an Operative standing next to a food bin (or tote) which is positioned under a machine that fills the bin with sliced lettuce. The Operative is forward bent and twisted to the right. He has his right foot in front of the other. His feet are spread hip width apart. He is wearing wellington boots which rather restrict ankle movement. He bends into the food bin with his trunk around 45 degrees forward bent. He is looking down into the food bin, forward bending his neck. He is supporting his bodyweight by his left arm which is coupling with the front aspect of the food bin. With his right hand, he hand scoops sliced lettuce, spreading out the lettuce evenly within the food bin. He never uses his right arm to support his bodyweight. He never hand scoops with his left hand. ''


Like throughout the Book, Gareth takes a fun, and serious approach to Manual Handling Risk Management supported by our Creative Director Emma Farrell's remarkable illustrations (Tip 17 illustration shown to the left).
