Manual Handling Risk Assessment


TIRA has been designed to be modular, in this we mean if you learn how to input records into the Manual Handling module the principles are appropriately the same for all the other risk assessment types covered by the application.  This will greatly increase the speed at which new user can become accustomed to and prolific in managing their risk assessment responsibilities via TIRA.




TIRA initially generates a unique reference ID which may be changed now or later to match your own referencing convention..
