Common Manual Handling Accident Claims

The most common types of manual handling accidents occur in accidents at work. They often involved lifting, pushing and pulling heavy or bulky items. Manual handling injuries can range in severity and generally cause damage to hands, arms, shoulders, neck or back. In many cases these accidents are caused by improper training, failure to provide safety equipment or an incompetent fellow employee.

Manual handling accidents can lead to long periods of time off work, or to expensive rehabilitation. As a result of the accident you may suffer loss of earnings and require care and assistance.

Employers' Manual Handling Regulations

The Manual Handling Operations Regulation 1992 set out the duties of employers to:

  • Make a sufficient risk assessment of all manual handing operations and review their policies
  • Take steps to reduce the risk of injury as much as possible
  • Avoid the need for hazardous handling as much as reasonably possible
  • Provide general indications where it is practical to do so relating to the weight of load and the heaviest side of any load.
