MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Materials Handling Safety" Videotape Program provides the information employees need to work safely when handling various types of materials. Many employees feel that moving and handling materials that they work with every day is an "ordinary" task, not something that they really need to be concerned about. Yet there are hundreds of thousands of "materials handling" accidents every year... from small splinters, cuts or scrapes... to crushed fingers, hands and feet... even deaths. The Videotape includes information on types of potential hazards, planning a job, personal protective equipment, proper lifting and moving techniques, other ergonomic considerations, hand trucks, carts and pallet trucks, mechanical lifting devices, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.Excerpt:
