Manual handing: an overview for employers

Earlier this year, the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) confirmed that they will be prioritising inspecting significant health risks from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) associated with manual handling activities and repetitive tasks in the workplace.

Even low-risk environments such as offices will require items to be moved, lifted and adjusted, so no work environment is ever really free of manual handling activity. It’s vital that these hazards are managed and it’s your responsibility as an employer to make sure risks are assessed and controls put in place.

In this guide, our Health & Safety experts have put together a quick overview, for employers in any industry, to help get a grip on what your legal obligations are when it comes to manual handling, including:

  • how to assess the workplace for manual handling hazards
  • the importance of a manual handling risk assessment
  • properly training your people in the correct manual handling techniques
  • how to support your employees where manual handling in the workplace is necessary
