Materials Handling Safety Program discusses the hazards that employees are likely to encounter, and explain the work practices and equipment they can use to control or eliminate these hazards. Materials handling is how the things that people need get to where they’re needed, on time and intact. And these activities can be dangerous. Every year, thousands of workers are killed or injured while moving, stacking and storing materials. But these accidents don’t have to happen. The program and booklet include information on preparing yourself to work safely, understanding ergonomics, safe lifting… step-by-step, hand trucks and dollies, platform trucks, carts, and pallet jacks, forklift safety, and more. The program in the kit comes with a comprehensive leader’s guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
