Development of a manual handling training program

With load handling recognized as a hazardous activity, several workplaces are training their workers in safe techniques. This training, however, is only yielding ambiguous results for the reduction in back injuries. The researchers will look again in depth at the way learning is designed and offered, in order to then develop an innovative training program that integrates the knowledge of expert handlers.
