Manual Material Handling
This half-day program teaches basic awareness of how to handle materials and heavy loads in a way that protects one of the most important areas of the body, the back. The course discusses how a healthy back functions, types of back injury and their common causes, the three basic steps for lifting simple objects, dealing with complex loads and tricky lifts, and six questions to ask yourself prior to attempting any lift. Paramount throughout the program is the emphasis on safe lifting, always lift within your capacity.
