Manual Handling Regulations

As well as the general risk assessment requirements set out in the Management Regulations, there is a requirement in the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended) to carry out a risk assessment on manual handling tasks.

The manual handling risk assessment should include:

  • The task being performed
  • The individual carrying out the manual handling operation,
  • The load (s) being moved in the manual handling operation,
  • The environment in which the manual handling operation is being conducted
  • The equipment being used.

The regulations demand that when your lifting and carrying activities present a significant risk, the employer has a duty to implement controls.

Your manual handling risk assessment will provide the information to put in place a safe system of work and amongst other issues will flag-up:

  • Where a manual handling operation should use mechanical help
  • Training requirements
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Health surveillance requirements for your manual handling operations
