Manual handling. Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended)

Guidance on Regulations.

Overview

Revised guidance aligned to the Regulations - as cited within - reflecting that musculoskeletal disorders account for almost half of all work-related ill-health and manual handling injuries represent over a third of accidents reported annually. Accordingly, this update, embracing continuing best practice and legislative amendments (notably European directives), documents risks from activities like lifting, loading, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving materials and the duties requiring employers to comply with the Regulations. Applicable in all such work places, whether loads are inanimate, eg trolleys or boxes, or animate such as persons or animals. Illustrated with colour diagrams showing potential circumstantial and posture hazards. Styled presentation (eg bold, italics and colour-coding) enables easy distinction between texts pertaining to the Regulations and accompanying guidance.
