What You Will Learn

Understanding the demands placed on workers having to do manual material handling in today's industrial workplace means balancing the most productivity from every employee while understanding their physical limitation and keeping them injury free. The key to satisfy both the demand and the needs of the worker is providing them the right engineered intervention (tool). Appreciating there is often more than one solution, understanding what's available along with the pros & cons of each device permits management to make informed decisions and the best investments. This fast moving, highly illustrated session deals with ways to implement better manual handling devices throughout the process (materials, manufacturing, assembly and packaging) which can improve the ergonomics, reduce waste, minimize much of the stress on the employee, while increasing efficiency and productivity.

Key Takeaways

• How to match the right tool to the task and the worker.
• How to increase the efficiency of the worker required to do manual material handling while keeping him safe and injury free.
