  • This guidance is mainly for employers, managers and safety representatives, but may also be useful for employees
  • The guidance explains how to avoid, assess and reduce the risk of injury from manual handling
  • Changes since the last edition
    • The publication has been restructured into four parts, with the regulations and brief guidance in Part 1 and more detailed guidance to help carry out risk assessments and control risks in Parts 2 - 4. Colour coding helps to identify the different parts
    • The appendix contains risk filters which help identify those tasks that do not require a detailed assessment - It explains how HSE's assessment tools can be used as part of the risk assessment process
    • The full risk assessment checklists are now online only and do not appear in the book
    • It reflects changes introduced for the self-employed by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (General Duties of Self-Employed Persons) (Prescribed Undertakings) Regulations 2015 and the Deregulation Act 2015 (Health and Safety at Work) (General Duties of Self-Employed Persons) (Consequential Amendments) Order 2015
