Questions we are often asked...
What can be done to prevent Manual Handling injuries? The main thing is a risk assessment, though there is other considerations- Does this load need to be moved? Can it be done by a handling aid.
Is there recommended weight limits for Manual Handling? The law does't specify a maximum weight limit. It is the duty of the employer to manage or control the risk: measures to take to meet this duty will vary depending on the circumstances of the task. There is no safe maximum weight for any load, although there are varying degrees of risk.
What is the law on Manual Handling to protect employees? Employers have a legal obligation under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, to make sufficient & suitable assessment of the risk to employees from the Manual Handling of loads. This is a legal requirement & the Regulations must be complied with.
