Claiming Compensation For Manual Handling Accidents

Manual handling accidents are one of the biggest causes of injury in the workplace.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992  impose strict duties on all employers.

These regulations apply to any work that involves lifting, loading, carrying or bending.

Your employer must avoid any manual handling wherever possible.

When manual handling tasks can’t be avoided the regulations impose further duties.

Your employer must operate a safe system for doing the job.

They should also provide you with suitable training for the work.

Unfortunately many employers just ignore their legal duties.

This leads to many accidents.
