More than a third of over 3-day injuries reported in England, Scotland, and Wales each year arise from the manual handling of loads by hand or bodily force. As with standard risk assessment, Clear Rain will consider the risks of manual handling to the health and safety of its employees. Record the significant hazard and put in place measures to prevent or control the risks.

Health risks from working in the sun…
A sunny day makes most of us feel good, but too much sunlight can harm the skin. It is not simply sudden exposure while on holiday that is harmful. Even a tan that has been built up gradually can be harmful to your health. A tan is a sign your skin has been damaged.
The problem is caused by the ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunlight. People whose jobs keep them outdoors for a long time, such as farm or building site workers, Market gardeners, Outdoor activity workers, and some public service workers could get more sun on their skin than is healthy for them.
Such people can be at a greater risk of skin cancer. All Clear Rain employees are provided with Sun creams, Caps and Sunglasses to help reduce the risk.
