Manual Handling Assessments

Get your Manual Handling Assessments here.

As an employer you must comply with the risk assessment requirements set out in the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 as well as the requirement in the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (MHOR) to carry out a risk assessment on manual handling tasks.

If you are an employee, you must make full use of any safe system of manual handling your employer puts in place.

Regulation 4(1) of MHOR sets out a hierarchy of measures to reduce the risks of manual handling.

  • avoid hazardous manual handling operations so far as is reasonably practicable;
  • assess any hazardous manual handling operations that cannot be avoided;
  • reduce the risk of injury so far as is reasonably practicable.

Search for the assessment you require. The assessments are a template for the equipment / materials and are fully editable. You can change the controls to make them specific to your work if needed.
