Manual material handling (MMH) operations can be found in most workplace settings including industrial establishments and manufacturing facilities, offices, healthcare facilities and restaurant locations. Statistics show that almost one in four workers will experience some form of injury as a result of lifting and lowering, pushing and pulling, carrying and holding, or resisting loads. In Ontario alone, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) account for 50% of all lost-time injuries and the numbers aren’t much better across the nation. Employers must provide adequate instruction where the handling of material by employees could result in an injury.
