Materials Handling Safety
MARCOM's interactive course on Materials Handling Safety provides the information employees need to work safely when handling and moving various types of materials. Many employees feel that moving and handling materials that they work with every day is an ordinary task, not something that they really need to be concerned about. Yet there are hundreds of thousands of materials handling accidents every year from small splinters, cuts or scrapes to crushed fingers, hands and feet even deaths. Areas covered in the course include types of potential hazards, planning a job, personal protective equipment, proper lifting and moving techniques, other ergonomic considerations, hand trucks, carts and pallet trucks, mechanical lifting devices, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
