Series code:

This document gives advice on assessing the main risks from transport movements, mechanical lifting operations, slips trips and falls, and manual handling at bring-sites (a facility where members of the public can deposit recyclable materials).

It provides guidance on reasonably practicable measures that can be introduced to eliminate or reduce these risks for employees, contractors and members of the public.

The guidance is aimed at designers of bring-sites, their owners and those in control of land with bring-sites, managers and supervisors of those who service these sites, and employers with responsibilities for them.
