Demonstration of the new MSD online assessment tool
HSE is demonstrating a new MSD tool - an all-in-one digital solution that is being developed for the well renowned MAC tool.
The new tool has been designed to simplify the process of completing each assessment, with a logical step-by-step approach, saving your assessors time in populating and interpreting the results manually.
Employers and safety representatives can use the tool to assess the risks posed by lifting, carrying, and team manual handling activities. The assessor can then understand, interpret, and categorise the level of risk, and implement the appropriate control measures.
In addition, the automated management reports include tracking of assessments that have been completed; identification of priority areas and tasks for improvement; support and identification of common themes across multiple departments / sites / locations.
