Lifting weights - what’s the legal limit?

The answer is – THERE ARE NONE. 

Lifting is a manual task and like all other manual tasks it must be assessed and controlled to reduce risk to all workers.

The best way to get guidance on hazardous manual tasks it to refer to the Hazardous Manual Tasks Code of Practice (COP) – WorkSafe Tasmania. This COP describes what a hazardous manual task is, the type of injury that can occur and how to reduce the risk of injury.
