What does TILE stand for?

What does TILE stand for in relation to manual handling risk assessments?

Thank you.

Dear Vanda,

Thank you for your question.

TILEO is an acronym associated with manual handling and stands for:

Task

Individual

Load

Environment

Other factors

The manual handling acronym can be used to assess any manual handling activity at work.

The Health and Safety Executive website has a publication which you can freely download from their website.

The publication is called Health and Safety in a care home and you can find it here:

http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/hsg220.pdf

So it is as simple as that TILE or TILEO is an acronym for an assessment for manual handling.

I hope this is helpful.

Best wishes,

Sheila
