Manual Material Handling Webcast

Join us to learn ways to prevent injuries at work and home

Did you know – back injuries are the second most common cause of lost work time, next to the common cold? Musculoskeletal injuries are also the leading cause of disabilities among people ages 19 to 45. This Manual Material Handling Webcast covers everything you need to know!

Manual material handling (MMH) is the process of routinely moving and handling objects by carrying, holding, lifting, pulling, pushing, and stooping. These injury types are often the most costly, subject to re-injury and impact the well-being of the employee along with the bottom line of your company.

Implementing MMH best practices and employee training helps reduce back and musculoskeletal injuries that can happen both on and off the clock.
