MSD Tool overview
The MSD assessment tool is the latest tool in the range from the HSE. It combines the popular MSD assessment guides MAC, ART and RAPP and transformed them into an all-in-one digital solution.
Employers and safety representatives can use the MSD tool to easily assess the risks posed by physical, strenuous activities. The assessor can then understand, interpret, categorise and communicate the level of risk. 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 the results manually.
The tool also includes:
- The option to tailor and set demographics to fit your company structure
- The use of a bespoke mobile app to complete the assessments offline
- An easy to use and fully GDPR compliant system that stores all tasks and assessments completed
- Comprehensive report for the whole organisation so you can identify priority areas

Analysing the reports for effective risk management
Once assessments have been completed, the MSD Tool consolidates all the assessments in one central system, so they can be easily reviewed and analysed.
The report categorises the completed assessments, showing what the tasks were, e.g. lift, carry or team task, the locations for where the assessments were completed, the assessors within the organisation, and date stamps to see when they were completed. This enables central management to monitor those assessments and ensure they are being completed correctly.
Integrates the same structure used by HSE inspectors to prioritise tasks:
- Actual risk of serious personal injury - critical
- Significant / probable / substantial - high priority
- Significant / possible / moderate - medium priority
This data enables organisations to focus their efforts on the highest risk activities first.
The report outlines the most common risk factors associated with each type of manual handling task. This helps identify common themes across multiple tasks and empowers organisations to identify control measures that can reduce the overall risk factor.
In addition to the organisation report, the system includes the functionality to filter based on the demographics or task. This helps to extract the reports and send them to managers responsible for health and safety at a local level, with details of the priority areas to be addressed.
Ultimately, the MSD Tool will save central management time and effort, and will help achieve a robust manual handling risk management programme.
