A new research report from the IRSST proposes a training program for manual handlers focused on competencies and rules. One of the prevalent training approaches consists of teaching basic guidelines, reflected in standard techniques that handlers are supposed to apply at all times. But recent studies question the effects of such training. The report offers practical tools for designing training programs that are more realistic and specific to the workplace.
