Assess the Risks

It’s not always possible to avoid manual handling. If this is the case, make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the manual handling operations to be undertaken. The manual handling operation must be assessed to ensure it can be done in a safe manner. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations (MHOR) 1992 specify four factors that must be considered when making an assessment:

  • Load
  • Individual
  • Task
  • Environment
  • Task
  • Individual
  • Load
  • Environment

 The acronym LITE or TILE can be used to remember these four factors.
