MOL Material Handling Blitz - Be Ready

MOL Material Handling Blitz - Be Ready
Handling materials is an integral part of most workplace activity, only the quantum of materials moved and the method of movement varies.



Handling materials shouldn't cause injuries or fatalities. Nor should it be a back-breaking job. Failing to protect workers from either mechanical or manual material handling injuries can be costly. For example, an employer was recently fined $50,000 for failing to ensure that materials were mechanically carried or moved in a way that did not endanger the safety of a worker. And, according to WSIB data, a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) caused by improper manual material handling, such as a back strain, results in 70 days lost, on average, which can easily exceed $50,000.

Are you taking every reasonable precaution to protect your workers from material handling hazards? Ministry of Labour inspectors will visit workplaces from September 14 to October 23, 2015 to ensure that employers are protecting workers from these hazards.
