What is a Manual Handling Risk Assessment?

A manual handling risk assessment, is a systematic evaluation of tasks or activities that involve the manual lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling of objects, loads, or people. The primary purpose of this assessment is to identify and mitigate potential risks associated with these manual handling activities to prevent injuries and promote workplace safety.
