(2) Without limiting regulation 3.1, a person who, at a workplace, is an employer, the main contractor or a self-employed person must, as far as practicable — (a) identify each hazard that is likely to arise from manual handling at the workplace; (b) assess the risk of injury or harm to a person resulting from each hazard, if any, identified under paragraph (a); and (c) consider the means by which the risk may be reduced. Further to the above, Work Safe Western Australia has published The Code of Practice Manual Handling which details how to go about fulfilling the legal requirement stated in the above regulation.
