What you need to do – Moving and handling

Carrying out a risk assessment

Moving and handling risk assessments help identify where injuries could occur and what to do to prevent them. It should be possible to complete the majority of assessments in-house as no-one knows your business better. The person carrying out the assessments must be competent to identify and address the risks from the most complex handling activities you undertake.  This usually requires specific training.

Identifying the risk

Activities that may increase the risk include, for example:

  • assisting in-person transfers
  • aiding treatment
  • assisting in carrying out daily activities (such as bathing) with individuals who will have specific needs

Assessments, care needs, competence and equipment provision are some of the factors that need to be addressed but handling people is not the only risk. Ancillary staff, porters, maintenance and support staff may also be expected to undertake handling activities which put them at risk and their activities will also need assessment and controls to manage the risk.

Some staff may have to adopt and hold awkward postures as part of their work, for example, nursing staff, sonographers and theatre staff. Stresses and strains arising from adopting awkward or static postures when caring for and treating people need to be addressed.
