Considerations - Question 6

Would using different equipment minimise or entirely remove the risks?

Wherever possible, the most important question to ask is whether you need to carry out the operation in the first instance. If the answer is no, then the risks are immediately removed. If an alternative means to move the equipment has been identified, this too must be assessed and any risks managed to an acceptable level.
