5The Kwajalein HourglassSaturday, February 13, 2016 / Volume 57 Number 7 WHAT IS MATERIAL HANDLING? Handling is de ned as means by which workersÂ’ hands move individual containers manually by lifting, lowering, lling, emptying or carrying them. Manual material handling can expose workers to physical conditions that can lead to injury. To avoid these injuries, we must improve the relationship between work tasks and the capabilities of the worker. The reason: Due to differing ages and physical abilities, not all employees can perform the same tasks. When preparing to handle loads we need to make sure we are both physically and mentally capable. We can do this by following a three-step process. Stop, Think and Act.STOP: Assess your own physical and mental state. Make sure you are focused on the task at hand. Also prepare yourself for work by making sure that your body is warm before trying to move anything. Muscles are not as exible when cold or after sitting for long periods of time; this makes the risk of injury greater. It is suggested that you put your body through the range of motions that you will be doing before you pick up the load. Reach over your head as high as possible taking a deep breath. These exercises will help warm and stretch your muscles and get you prepared to lift. THINK about the situation, environment and the load. Use the time when you are warming up to look for hazards and see how and where you will be taking the load to ensure it is clear and safe. Make sure you have a clear place to land the load after moving it; you do not want to try to clear a landing site while your hands are full. This will also keep you from having to lift the load twice. Check the size, weight and hand holds of the load. Make sure you are capable of lifting it. If it is over 50 pounds GET HELP! Make sure it is balanced and easy to handle. ACT in the best and safest manner to avoid injuries. Use lifting and moving equipment as your rst choice. If equipment is not available, the use of proper lifting techniques must be instituted and will be covered in the next Simply Safety.
