Question and answer
When moving and positioning an individual, what safety factors need to be considered for the activity?
As with any other risk, if you can eliminate or avoid the risks from manual handling, this is by far the best option. [ You should try to remove as many of the constraints as possible to reduce the risks to as low a level as reasonably practicable. An ergonomic approach is recommended – look at how the task can be fitted to the individual. Consider whether mechanical handling aids could be used, this could range from a simple trolley or sack truck to more sophisticated aids such as conveyors or fork lift trucks. If you cannot eliminate or mechanise the manual handling tasks, you must
carry out a risk assessment where the task could present a risk of injury. You need to look at ways to reduce the risks to as low a level as reasonably practicable. ]
