Lifting and carrying items in the workplace are common activities – they are also common areas for injury.
Use this risk assessment guide to assess whether tasks involve repetitive/strenuous lifting or carrying actions, or other common safety, health or environmental issues. For those familiar with NIOSH we have also included a way to calculate the associated risk.
Are there areas for improvement? There almost always are – and sometimes the solutions are easy.
