Manual Materials Handling
You’ve built your dream business, and now you need to protect it. Start by educating yourself and your employees on safe work practices to ensure you’re taking the appropriate steps when handling manual materials. This checklist is designed to be a tool to quickly identify potential problems with manual materials handling tasks. Additional risk factors may exist that are not accounted for in this checklist.
It’s common practice to follow up checklist observations with more precise techniques to confirm problem risk factors. A “No” response indicates potential problem areas that should be investigated further.
