Manual Handling Solutions for Farms (HSE AS23)

How much will it cost?

The solutions to most manual handling risks will involve a combination of physical measures, systems of work and operator training. Often the costs of these solutions are small and they are always tiny in comparison to the costs of disabling and painful injuries. Reducing risks from manual handling will usually improve the efficiency of the task, reduce labour costs and improve staff motivation.
