Health and Safety, and Lifting and Handling, in the workplace

Work-related manual handling injuries are one of the most common types of occupational ill health.
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 establish a clear hierarchy of measures for dealing with risks from manual handling. These are:
■ avoid hazardous manual handling operations so far as reasonably practicable;
■ assess any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided; and
■ reduce the risk of injury so far as reasonably practicable.

The Manual Handling Assessment Charts (MAC) is a tool designed to help health and safety inspectors assess the most common risk factors in lifting (and lowering), carrying and team handling operations. Employers, safety officers, safety representatives and others may also find the Manual Handling Assessment Charts useful to identify high risk manual handling operations and help them complete their risk assessments.
For further information on the manual handling assessments charts and manual handling operatons regulations, please refer to the download ‘Manual Handling Assessment Charts’ from the Health and Safety Executive.
