Manual Material Handling (MMH) tasks contribute to a large percentage of our WSBC time loss accepted injuries at UBC. It is important that both staff and supervisor recognize MMH hazards, follow safe working procedures and implement effective ergonomic interventions that eliminate or minimize the risk and impact of MMH injuries.
UBC’s Ergonomics Program offers the following resources:
- Training. Register online for one of our regularly scheduled MMH Ergonomics Trainings
- Lifting guidelines: how much is too much and guidance on lifting mechanics.
