Manual Material Handling - Online Training

45 minutes I average run time

Cut training costs, minimize time lost, and reduce the cost of compliance by having your employees complete their Manual Material Handling training online.

 

Manual material handling (MMH) operations can be found in most workplace settings including industrial establishments and manufacturing facilities, offices, healthcare facilities and restaurant locations.  Statistics show that almost one in four workers will experience some form of injury as a result of lifting and lowering, pushing and pulling, carrying and holding, or resisting loads. In Ontario alone, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) account for 50% of all lost-time injuries and the numbers aren’t much better across the nation. Employers must provide adequate instruction where the handling of material by employees could result in an injury.

 

This course will explore common causes and controls of MSDs, and introduce the participant to safe working procedures in order to handle material in the workplace without injury.  The term MSD is used collectively for a number of injuries and disorders of the muscles, tendons, nerves, etc.  Other terms that mean the same include; repetitive strain injury (RSI), cumulative trauma disorder (CTD), work-related musculoskeletal disorder (WMSD), musculoskeletal injury (MSI, MSK), occupational overuse syndrome (OOS), and sprain & strain.

  • Introduction to Manual Material Handling

  • Biometrics of Manual Material Handling

  • Musculoskeletal Disorders

  • Recognizing Manual Material Handling Hazards
