Musculoskeletal Disorders

The HSE have updated their guide to Musculoskeletal Disorders (INDG143).

This leaflet (previously published in 2012) provides practical guidance on reducing the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling. It helps employers comply with their duties under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992. They have revised the leaflet to bring it into line with their legal guide to the regulations (L23) and current ways of working. It now includes more advice on simple filters to help you identify low-risk tasks which do not need further assessment. They have removed the safe lifting tips from the leaflet, but they will be available from HSE’s website.

The leaflet is available here.

Further information is available on the HSE website here and on their Microsite which includes their Go Home Healthy Campaign here.
