Material Handling  (back)

Injuries may occur (and be prevented) related to forklifts/ PITs, materials handling, warehouse distribution issues, slips, trips, falls/walking and working surfaces, improper lifting, ergonomics, insufficient hazard communication (new GHS), guarding floor and wall openings, exit routes, emergency action and fire prevention plans.
