Manual Handling Risk Assessment

Assess Manual Handling risks to
reduce common workplace injuries

Current legislation requires an employer to minimize the risk of manual handling injuries to employees. Manual handling injuries are the most common of all workplace injuries. They can result in significant pain and suffering, compensation claims and decreased productivity. They are frequently associated
with extended “return to work” times.

As many manual handling injuries are not visibly obvious, they can also cause morale issues with assertions of “bludging” and “false claims”.

Ensuring your manual handling risks are minimized, will not only cover you in the unlikely event of an incident, but also provide your employees with peace of mind by reassuring them that their workplace is safe and you care about their health.

 

Correct management of manual handling risks in your workplace can save money and help prevent disputes. Our manual handling risk assessment will:
