Move It Safely: Avoiding Injury While Handling Materials

Many employees are injured, sometimes permanently, when they attempt to lift, carry or place loads that are too heavy, bulky or awkward to move safely. Sometimes, employees know the load is too much for them, but they try to move the material anyway to save time or to save face with fellow workers. This video training confronts the issue of employee intimidation and taking short-cuts to save time. It emphasizes the need to know your own capabilities, size up loads properly and team lift or use the aid of equipment when needed. The video training reviews safe lifting, carrying and placing techniques. It discusses the use of hand trucks, carts, powered pallet jacks and forklifts to move materials.

Viewers also are reminded to be aware of their surroundings, look out for their co-workers, use the proper personal protective equipment, be conscious of potential hazards and maintain good housekeeping. Employees who view this training get the practical knowledge to perform their jobs safely, know their own limits and take responsibility for their own safety and that of their co-workers. This Video On Demand is a great training tool for new material handlers, as well as those who have been on the job and may take safety for granted.
