In an effort to reduce manual 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. We bring them to your work area and train you on how to safely use them. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and/or request to loan.
Work Planning Control (WPC) is required; equipment can only be used by trained and authorized personnel.
