The digital versions of the Manual Handling Assessment Charts (MAC), Assessment of Repetitive Tasks (ART) and Risk Assessment of Pushing and Pulling (RAPP) tools have been designed to simplify the process of completing each assessment.

They have a logical step-by-step approach and will save your assessors considerable time in populating the results manually.

Employers and safety representatives can use these tools to easily assess the risks posed by physical, strenuous activities.

The assessor can then understand, interpret, categorise, and communicate the level of risk. You can access the tools by following the below links:

If you want to consolidate your assessments and analyse the results, a premium option of the tool is also available.
