Question and answer
explain principles for moving and handling equipment and other objects safely
One way to assess manual handling activities is to look at four specific areas ? Task, Individual, Load and Environment (easily remembered by the acronym TILE). [ [ As with any assessment, the workforce should be involved in the process, [ and use should be made of any relevant guidance available for particular industries. Key factors to consider in each element are: 1. The Task Does the
activity involve twisting, stooping, bending, excessive travel, pushing, pulling or precise positioning of the load, sudden movement, inadequate rest or recovery periods, team handling or seated work? 2. The Individual Does the individual require unusual strength or height for the activity, are they pregnant, disabled or suffering from a health problem. Is specialist knowledge or training required? 3. The Load Is the load heavy, unwieldy, difficult to grasp, sharp, hot, cold, difficult to grip, are the contents likely to move or shift? 4. The Environment Are there space constraints, uneven, slippery or unstable floors, variations in floor levels, extremely hot, cold or humid conditions, poor lighting, poor ventilation, gusty winds, clothing or Personal Protective Equipment that restricts movement? ]
