Material handling and material transportation are wide spread fields of work and are a huge aspect of business across many different industries around the world. Whether you deliver packages, load freights, or sort mail, you are a part of the vast world of the material handling and material transportation work force. An unfortunate truth is that this type of occupation is one that is often subject to strain and sprain injuries to the back especially, which leads to missed work and injury claims.This makes it easy to agree with the fact that back injury prevention training is key in a safe work environment. In this post, we will discuss a case study, which exams the reduction in work related injuries within the United States Postal Service. Results were derived one year after introducing the patented PowerLift lower back safety training techniques and they might surprise you.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2.9 million reported non-fatal work related injuries in 2015 and 3.5 percent of that comes from the construction industry. It’s easy to agree that construction as a whole is a very physically taxing industry for those on the job site. The truth of the matter is that a lot of these injuries could have been avoided if these employees had received proper training for material handling. In this post we’ll be taking a look at a case study which compares two road construction companies; one that adopted the PowerLift job site safety program and another that opted for a traditional program that taught the “squat lift”.
I think you’ll agree when I say that lower back injuries are a major issue in the distribution and manufacturing industries. These ailments costs businesses in these industries untold thousands of dollars a year in workers compensation settlements alone. Thankfully there is a back safety training program that has been proven to work time and time again in the distribution and manufacturing industries. Two separate case studies will be discussed in this post. One that deals with grocery distribution centers and one that deals with manufacturing plants. These studies prove just how much this material handling safety training can save a company like yours.
I’m sure that we can all agree that lower back injuries are a serious issue in the workplace and that they cost businesses thousands of dollars every year. Although injuries of some sort are inevitable over time, we do have the ability to greatly reduce and prevent back injuries with proper back safety training. In this post I am going to show you that there is a system that is proven to work in any occupational setting without hindering productivity, that system is the patented PowerLift® training program.

When it comes to keeping your employees safe while on the job everyone agrees it is the right, necessary and even legal thing to do. What many disagree about is how best to deliver the safety training.
Operations executives are finding that an eLearning program has a valuable place in training their employees on a wide variety of topics. But the term eLearning can be confusing and misunderstood and since it is relatively new in the operations world, it is helpful to clarify what it means and what an eLearning program might look like in a plant, warehouse or distribution environment.
Employers who rely on temporary workers may soon find themselves required to train the temporaries as though they were their own employees.
