Material Handling - The efficient handling and storing of materials is vital to the construction industry as these operations provide a continuous flow of raw materials, parts, and assemblies through the workplace and ensure that materials are available when needed. Workers frequently cite the weight and bulkiness of objects being lifted as major contributing factors to their injuries. The second factor frequently cited was body movement. Bending, followed by twisting and turning were the more commonly cited movements that caused back injuries or back pain.

Topics included in this safety video are: potential injuries, moving, handling, and storing materials, using materials handling equipment, cranes, slings, and ergonomic safety and health principles.
