Potentially disabling injuries often occur when material handlers take safety shortcuts to try to save time, or to show off their lifting abilities to co-workers. This video demonstrates how to move loads safely with proper lifting, carrying and placing techniques. Viewers learn ways to lift loads manually or with the assistance of hand trucks, carts, pallet jacks and forklifts. The training emphasizes the need to have a clear travel path, be aware of trip-and-fall hazards, obstructions, and the locations and travel paths of your fellow employees. Proper methods to stack materials on pallets, secure loads to pallets, transport pallets, and place them are detailed.

This Video On Demand details the types of personal protective equipment for moving different types of materials, including the use of hard hats, hearing protection, eye protection, and chemical-resistant gloves. Give your employees the necessary knowledge and de-stigmatize the act of asking for help or using equipment by providing this video training to anyone who moves materials.
