(Eliminate, Reduce, Isolate, Control, PPE, Discipline)

Personal Injury, property damage,


Persons may cause long and or
short term injury to themselves

Regulations require employers to avoid the need to carry


out manual handling which creates a risk of injury.
Where avoidance is not reasonably practicable
employers have to make an assessment, reduce the risk
of injury as far as reasonably practicable and provide
information about the weight of loads.
Choose person who is capable of manually handling the
pipe, do the proper technique, ( stable foot position
shoulder width apart, bend knee, get a good grip of the
load, lift it closer to trunk/body, lift it with leg, and move
moderately, never twist body once load is lifted, always
ask for help.
