  1. Manual Materials Handling

  2. Related Work Activities • Lifting, pushing or pulling heavy bags • Carrying large, heavy sacks • Moving large, heavy drums • Lifting sheet type objects • Transferring heavy objects

  3. Hazardous Conditions & Unsafe Acts • Bending from the waist to pick up objects. • Lifting boxes above the chest. • Twisting the body to carry a heavy object. • Lifting objects when in poor physical condition.

  4. Potential Outcomes • Lost work time • Worker’s compensation claims • Long-lasting back pain • Permanent injury • Permanently disabled

  5. Back Injuries Occur From Poor Lifting Technique

  6. Factors That Contribute to Back Injuries • Weight of the load lifted • The range of the lift • The location of the load in relation to the body • The size and shape of the load • The number and frequency of lifts performed

  7. What Materials Are Lifted? • Compact bags • Compact loads • Large and heavy bags • Bulky sacks • Drums and barrels • Sheet materials • Two-person lifts • Transferring heavy objects

  8. Lifting a Compact Bag

  9. Lowering a Compact Bag

  10. Remember: Always keep your back straight when lifting!

  12. Lift Objects Close To Body

  13. Lifting Heavy Large Sacks

  14. Lifting Bulky Sacks

  15. Lifting Empty Drums and Barrels

  16. Lifting Sheet Materials

  17. How should a "two-person lift and stack" be done?

  18. Transferring Heavy Objects Pull the material toward you Transfer your weight to the lift side

  19. Transferring Heavy Objects Lift only to required level Shift weight to your other leg

  20. Storing Heavy Objects • Storing heavy objects at waist height will reduce the vertical lifting strain on the body.

  21. Material Handling Devices:Hand Trucks

  22. Hand Trucks

  23. Brick & Block Carts

  24. Brick & Tile Wheelbarrow

  25. Hand Truck/Cart Safety • Work gloves and safety shoes should be worn. • Check for damaged parts • Place heavier loads on bottom • Do not overload • The operator should push and balance the truck always walking forward.

  31. Lift Progression With and Without lifter

  32. Wall Unit Tongs

  33. Brick Tongs

  34. Shoveling: For Your Safety • Make sure that the terrain you are digging is free of cables and pipes • If you are not sure, contact utilities for location of cables and pipes prior to digging. • Wear the proper protective clothing; safety footwear, gloves, long pants if necessary • Allow for safe distance between people if you are working with other people.
