What the HSE say:

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require you to assess the risks to the health and safety of your workers.

Where this identifies hazardous manual handling of loads, you should also comply with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (the Manual Handling Regulations).

The Manual Handling Regulations set out a clear hierarchy of measures you must follow to prevent and manage the risks from hazardous manual handling:

  • avoid hazardous manual handling operations, so far as reasonably practicable
  • assess the risk of injury to workers from any hazardous manual handling that cannot be avoided
  • reduce the risk of injury to workers from hazardous manual handling to as low as reasonably practicable

Workers have duties too. They should:

  • follow systems of work in place for their health and safety
  • use properly any equipment provided for their health and safety
  • cooperate with you on health and safety matters
  • inform you if things change or they identify hazardous handling activities
  • take care to make sure their activities do not put others at risk

Consult and involve your workforce. Your workers and their representatives know first-hand what the risks in the workplace are and can often suggest practical solutions to control them.
