Manual Handling Management Assessment Checklist And Action Plan
The employer must identify manual handling operations that pose significant risks to
people's health or safety; and, so far as is reasonably practicable, avoid
the need for his employees to undertake any manual handling operation where the risk assessment shows that such work involves a risk of
their being injured; ensure that the health and safety risks of
alternatives to manual handling are assessed and
eliminated or controlled.
Consideration should be made for the avoidance of manual handling by eliminating the need for handling
altogether or, if that cannot be arranged, by automation or mechanisation
of the operation.

1. General Information and Responsibility
