Manual handling is a regular occurrence in many work places but can cause long-term injuries if not carried out using the correct technique or by attempting to move loads that are too heavy or too big.
It is a good idea to consult the L.I.T.E manual handling approach when moving and handling loads.
Management of hazards
A risk assessment is created to identify the hazards associated with dangerous activities and the appropriate ways of controlling them. This is a key component in safety management, alongside the reduction of risk. Our risk assessments outlines both components and provides you with a risk matrix system to show you how risk should be reduced.
Clear safe systems of work.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all staff carry out safe methods of work in line with the risk assessment as well as ensuring all outlined control measures are identified, followed and understood clearly. Then and only then should the risk assessment be signed by all staff working on the task to show they have read and understood the potential hazards and the control measures put in place.
We would always advise that employees undertake relevant training within their job role. Training your staff and employees will contribute extended knowledge and safer working practises which gives your staff the competence to carry out their job roles. It is important to keep training records up to date and complete refresher training when required.
