1 1 Manual Materials Handling

2 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 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 4 Potential Outcomes Lost work time Worker’s compensation claims Long-lasting back pain Permanent injury Permanently disabled

5 5 Back Injuries Occur From Poor Lifting Technique

6 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 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 8 Lifting a Compact Bag

9 9 Lowering a Compact Bag

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

11 11 Lifting a Compact Load

12 12 Lift Objects Close To Body

20 20 Transferring Heavy Objects Pull the material toward youTransfer your weight to the lift side

21 21 Transferring Heavy Objects Lift only to required level Shift weight to your other leg

22 22 Storing Heavy Objects Storing heavy objects at waist height will reduce the vertical lifting strain on the body.

23 23 Material Handling Devices: Hand Trucks

24 24 Hand Trucks

25 25 Brick & Block Carts

26 26 Brick & Tile Wheelbarrow

27 27 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.

38 38 Brick Tongs

39 39 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.

41 41 Shoveling and Throwing

42 42 Shoveling Recommendations Shoveling rate15 scoops per minute for 15 minutes at a time Shovel loadDepends on shoveling rate <15 lbs for rate of 15 scoops/min Throw heightShould not exceed 4 feet Throw distanceOptimal distance is 3 feet Reduce load for longer distances

43 43 Remember: Lift with your knees and legs --- Not with your back
