OSHA's Materials Handling - The Safe Way

Duration: 90 Minutes
Many organizations have to handle and move heavy or bulky materials. Depending on their size and weight, the means available to handle them varies. Handling such materials involves risk of injury to workers. For that reason, OSHA regulates the way materials are handled in the workplace.
Material Handling Safety - OSHA
Instructor: Deidre L. Tate
Product ID: 507487
Objectives of the Presentation
  • Become familiar with safety regulations on powered industrial trucks
  • Practice evaluating safety problems
  • Use OSHA standards to improve working conditions
  • Identify types of material handling equipment
  • Describe hazards associated with material handling activities (e.g., storage, use, and disposal)
  • Identify methods to prevent hazards associated with material handling equipment

Why Should you Attend
From time to time almost all employees are involved in moving materials, structures or products; these activities often lead to injuries, which in many instances can be avoided by using safe materials handling practices to avoid sprains, strains, muscle pulls or more severe injuries including death. Equipment such as powered industrial trucks, cranes, hoists, and derricks are used to aid in the movement of materials (especially large, bulky, or heavy loads). In this training we are going to look at some of the important requirements for proper selection, safe operation and maintenance of powered and hand operated material handling equipment.

There are legal requirements in OSHA standards that you must know about and comply with. The most important standard for you depends on the type of work you are doing. We’ll spend some time looking at requirements in general industry, shipyard/ long shoring employment and construction. 29 CFR 1910.178, 1910.179, 1910.184, 1917.13, 1915.112, 1918.81, 1926.251, 1926.600, 1926.602.

Topic Background
Approximately 35,000 serious injuries and 62,000 non-serious injuries involving powered industrial trucks occur in the United States every year. NIOSH and OSHA recommend that employers and workers comply with OSHA regulations and consensus standards, maintain equipment and take appropriate measures to prevent injuries from materials handling and associated equipment. Your training is not complete with this online course. This is just the beginning to give you some general information and the hazards associated with material handling along with the safe use, selection and maintenance of powered/manual industrial lift equipment. You and/or your employees also need supervised hands-on training with the specific equipment you will be using at your facility.
