Ergonomic Guidelines for Manual Material Handling

This free full color downloadable booklet was developed by EASE in partnership with CAL/OSHA, NIOSH and CNA; this booklet will help all companies, particularly small to mid-sized companies, recognize high-risk manual material handling work tasks and choose effective options for reducing their physical demands including: 1) Eliminating lifting from the floor and using simple transport devices like carts or dollies, 2) Using lift-assist devices like scissors lift tables or load levelers, 3) Using more sophisticated equipment like powered stackers, hoists, cranes, or vacuum assist devices, 4) Guiding your choice of equipment by analyzing and redesigning work stations and workflow.
