New HSE Manual Handling Guidance

13 September 2016

HSE have issued two helpful documents. The new Risk assessment of pushing and pulling (RAPP) tool complements the well-known MAC tool. The Guidance to the Manual Handling Regulations (L23 Fourth Edition) has been fully updated.

Many offshore sector organisations in and beyond the UK N Sea sector use MH Procedures that link to L23 and the MAC tool, and so may now need an update – to include these new references if nothing else. As usual, both documents can be downloaded free from HSE website.
