TBT4 Move Materials With Assist

| |
Washington University - St. Louis

Summary Statement

This tool box talk is fourth in a series of 6 developed by Washington University in St. Louis on construction ergonomics. This one focuses on preventing back injuries by getting an assist when manually lifting. It recommends using a cart for transporting loads, taking less trips, avoiding carrying materials on the shoulder and helping each other to lift large or heavy materials when a cart or hoist is not available.
