Material Handling – Think Before – Supervisor's Safety Script
Topic Focus: Material Handling Safety and Hand Trucks
Think Before You Move. Load the Truck Properly and Ensure that All Items are Secure.
While hand trucks can make moving materials safer, when used improperly, hand trucks can cause injuries rather than helping to prevent them. For example, strains and sprains can occur when a person pulls a hand truck instead of pushing it.
Hold a safety meeting on the current topic of the month with the accompanying Supervisor's Safety Script. Each script covers the key safety points of the particular topic. There's also space on the reverse side to add your own notes.
