||Analysis of a sample of 126 recent manual handling incident reports from the offshore industry indicated a variety of root causes, the most common being poor workplace design, poor equipment design and the use of inappropriate equipment. Inadequate risk assessment was found to be a root cause in only 5% of incidents. Other findings are discussed.
