Material handling in the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) context refers to the movement, storage, and transportation of goods, products, or materials within a workplace. This includes lifting, carrying, stacking, and storing items, which can pose various risks to worker safety if not managed properly. Improper material handling can result in musculoskeletal injuries, strains, or accidents like trips and falls. To ensure safety, OHS guidelines emphasize ergonomic considerations, proper lifting techniques, the use of mechanical aids like forklifts or pallet jacks, and training in safe handling procedures. Creating a safe environment involves identifying potential hazards, implementing proper equipment and protocols, and providing ongoing education to workers to prevent injuries and promote a safer workplace.
