The 4th Edition Of The Manual Handling Operation Regulations 1992

In October 2016, the HSE released the 4th edition of the manual handling operations regulations. This guidance has yielded some great new updates.

Since the launch of the MAC Tool (the HSE preferred tool) companies like ourselves have been crying out for a risk assessment tool for pushing and pulling. So we have been very excited about the launch of the RAPP tool.

The RAPP tool  is a great easy to use tool, which will allow individuals to be able to complete risk assessments for mostly all of the pushing and pulling tasks that happen in the workplace.

To keep in line with this newest addition, we will be including training in all of our 3 & 2 day train the trainer courses,  In addition to the training, we also include as part of our pack an electronic version of the tool which makes for easy reporting in the workplace.

Should you require a refresher or new training for the workforce Tetris Training can help in the following ways:

The 1st option is to train a team of in-house instructors. This course will train new instructors to be able to deliver in-house risk assessments for manual handling and also be able to deliver training in-house.
