Moving and handling are about using your body to lift, move, hold or support a load manually.

Moving and handling includes:
  • Lifting
  • Carrying
  • Pulling
  • Pushing
  • Static holding (holding in one position)
  • Lowering
  • Reaching/stretching
  • Supporting.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (as amended) (MHOR) cover manual handling. The requirements of these regulations can be summarised:

  • remove risks of injury associated with moving and handling activities;
  • if you can’t remove the injury risks, then you assess them;
  • take the necessary measures to reduce the risk of injury to the lowest level possible;
  • inform, instruct and train your workers in moving and handling. 

There are four factors  LITE – that you must consider when carrying out a moving and handling assessment:

  • Load – what is being carried or moved?
  • Individual – who is moving and/or handling the load?
  • Task – what does the activity actually involve? And how will it be undertaken?
  • Environment – where will the moving and handling activity be carried out?
