Abstract:
Provides guidance for assessing the problems and risks associated with manual patient handling in the healthcare sector, and for identifying and applying ergonomic strategies and solutions to those problems and risks. 

Its main goals are:
- to improve caregivers' working conditions by decreasing biomechanical overload risk, thus limiting work-related illness and injury, as well as the consequent costs and absenteeism, and
- to account for patients' care quality, safety, dignity and privacy as regards their needs, including specific personal care and hygiene.
