RR674: Reducing the risks associated with the manual handling of air passenger baggage for narrow bodied aircraft

This report is an update of the review for ramp-based baggage handling related literature undertaken in 2005 (Tapley and Riley, 2005). The aim of this review is to present information relating to alternative methods of loading narrow-bodied aircraft that reduce the manual handling related injury and ill-health risks to the handlers, and to identify knowledge gaps.

This was used to inform subsequent work at East Midlands Airport in 2007/2008 (Musculoskeletal ill-health risks for Airport Baggage Handlers: Report on a stakeholder project at East Midlands Airport – RR675).
