This page holds moving and handling risk assessments that have been written by the Moving and Handling team or have been sent to and approved by the team. The risk assessments are generic in that they will apply to a number of areas within NHSGGC. You can download them to be included in your ward / departments Health and Safety Management Manual. If you do so however, you must ensure that you have altered the generic principles of the risk assessment to your own specifc area, for example, you may have to take into account specifc risks associated with the environment you work in or the equipment you have access to.
Blank moving and handling risk assessment forms are available from the Health & Safety Policies, Guidance Documents and Forms pages.
This page will be added to as new assessments are received, if you have a risk assessment that you would like to add, please send it to [email protected]
