Manual Material Handling (MMH) 

45 Minutes 


Whether your business is an construction, office, restaurant, or manufacturing plant, high quality Manual Material Handling safety training can be beneficial!  Our unique online training helps reduce repetitive strain injury, musculoskeletal injury, and manual lifting injuries in your employees. Knowledge is power!


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.


This course will explore common causes and controls of MSDs, and introduce the participant to safe working procedures in order to handle material in the workplace without injury.  The term MSD is used collectively for a number of injuries and disorders of the muscles, tendons, nerves, etc.  Other terms that mean the same include; repetitive strain injury (RSI), cumulative trauma disorder (CTD), work-related musculoskeletal disorder (WMSD), musculoskeletal injury (MSI, MSK), occupational overuse syndrome (OOS), and sprain & strain.


Modules: Introduction to Manual Material Handling, Biometrics of Manual Material Handling, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Recognizing Manual Material Handling Hazards, Controlling Workplace Manual Material Handling Hazards, Guideline for Safer Manual Material Handling.
