Safe Lifting In Construction Environments
Lifting and carrying: it's something we do all the time, and we normally don't think twice about it. But there are good reasons to consider how we lift and carry things, because there are right ways and wrong ways to do it -- and what you don't know about them can hurt you.
This safety video will help employees improve their lifting habits and prevent lifting-related accidents. Upon completion of the program, employees will:
- Recognize the types of hazards associated with common lifting tasks
- Understand the physical reasons for safe lifting practices
- Be able to describe safe lifting practices
- Know the appropriate techniques to employ for specific types of lifts
