Handling solutions gallery

This image gallery gives examples of equipment that can be used when carrying out a range of typical farming tasks. It contains some practical measures and ideas that can help you reduce the likelihood of suffering injury from manual handling . The gallery expands on, and illustrates, some of the solutions outlined in the HSE leaflet AS23(rev2) Manual handling solutions for farms.

The emphasis is on practical solutions and therefore it does not cover other aspects of The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, such as the requirements to assess risks or provide training to staff. Not all solutions are appropriate in all circumstances and there may well be other equally effective measures which can be taken to reduce the risk of injury for the activities featured.
