Manual Handling Regulations - Duty Holders


The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 impose duties on both employers and employees, as well as the self-employed.

Employers and self-employed persons have duties to avoid manual handling where reasonably practicable, and, where avoidance is not reasonably practicable, to assess manual handling risks and take steps to reduce risks of injury.

Employees have a duty to follow any system of work his employer introduces to prevent or minimise manual handling risks.
