Moving and Handling

‘Try handling different material… for different results.’

Deyth Banger

When it comes to handling and moving objects, it is important the risk of damage to the object/person that is being moved, as well as the person carrying out the manoeuvre is acknowledged. Having acknowledged and identified the risk it is vital that a risk assessment is completed and where possible the lift be avoided.

It is well documented that the general public understand the need for risk assessment but feel that completing one is onerous and wasting time, however, the assessment and putting measures in place to control the risk can ensure that injury does not occur.
