If risks from moving and handling are to be managed successfully, there must be support from those at the top of the organisation, whatever its size. This can be expressed in a clear statement of policy – supported by organisational arrangements – to ensure that the statement is implemented. Key elements include:

recognition of the risks
commitment to introducing precautions to reduce that risk
a statement of clear roles and responsibilities
an explanation of what is expected from individual employees
arrangements for training and providing / maintaining equipment
arrangements for monitoring compliance
a commitment to supporting people who have been injured in connection with their work

Employers must reduce the risk of injury to staff and people using care services by:

avoiding those manual handling tasks that could result in injury, where reasonably practicable
assessing the risks from moving and handling that cannot be avoided
putting measures in place to reduce the risk, where reasonably practicable

Employees must:

follow appropriate systems of work and use the equipment provided
co-operate with their employer and let them know of any problems
take reasonable care to ensure that their actions do not put themselves or others at risk.
