Material Handling, Construction

Handling materials can involve diverse operations such as hoisting tons of steel with a crane, driving a truck loaded with concrete blocks, carrying bags or materials manually, and stacking palletized bricks or other materials such as drums, barrels, kegs, and lumber. Unfortunately, the improper handling of materials often result in costly injuries. Workers must be aware of both manual handling safety concerns and safe equipment operating techniques.
