The latest online assessment tool in the range from HSE. The new musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) tool is an all-in-one digital solution for the well renowned MAC tool. It has been designed to simplify the process of completing each assessment, with a logical step by step approach, saving your assessors time in populating and interpreting the results manually.
Employers and safety representatives can use the tool to assess the risks posed by lifting, carrying and team manual handling activities. The assessor can then understand, interpret and categorise the level of risk, and implement the appropriate control measures.
In addition, the assessment tool has automated management reports that include:
- Tracking of assessments that have been completed
- Identifies priority areas and tasks for improvement
- Supports identification and common themes across multiple departments/sites/locations
Example images how the system displays:
The management report has been designed for organisations with multiple departments and/or sites to enable the person responsible for Health and Safety to view all of the assessments in one place. This will help to understand priority areas, while reducing the administration burden to compile each individual assessment.

The Manual Handling Assessment Charts (MAC) INDG 383 is a tool designed to help users identify high-risk workplace manual handling activities. Employers and safety representatives can use the tool to assess the risks posed by lifting, carrying and team manual handling activities. It will help understand, interpret and categorise the level of risk of the various known risk factors associated with these activities using a numerical and colour coding score system.
The Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART) INDG 438 is designed to help risk assess tasks that require repetitive moving of the upper limbs (arms and hands). It helps you to assess some of the common risk factors in repetitive work that contribute to the development of upper limb disorders (ULDs).
Risk Assessment of Pushing and Pulling (RAPP) INDG 478 will help you identify high-risk pushing and pulling operations and check the effectiveness of any risk-reduction measures.
