Material Handling Loaner Program

Important Note: In an effort to comply with the recommendation of practicing social distancing (at least 6ft), the Ergo Team will be assessing any request to utilize the material handling equipment to ensure that this work can be performed safely. Please note that this equipment is not intended to move any furniture or large pieces of equipment that are outside the capacity the equipment can handle. Please contact ergo@lbl.gov for assistance.

In an effort to reduce material handling, the EHS Ergo Team has created a material handling loaner program open to all at the Berkeley Lab . These material handling devices can be used for up to 2 weeks. Contact ergo@lbl.gov for more details and/or request to loan.
