Manual Handling Risk Assessment

As an employer it’s your duty to protect your employees from injuries that can be sustained from handling tasks. Manual handling covers everything from picking up a box of printer paper to moving heavy items in a warehouse.

Employees must be trained to push, pull, lift and put down boxes correctly, to reduce the risk of injury.
