Description

The integrated materials handling prevention strategy combines training and intervention and is based on the understanding, observation and analysis of five principles of action. These principles are common to all handling techniques used by workers.

Principle 2: Load distribution, refers to the quality of the load, i.e. its distribution over the worker's body structures. The larger the load, the better it should be distributed so that it is not concentrated in one place.

Ce Principe 2: Répartition du chargement, réfère à la qualité du chargement, c’est-à-dire à sa répartition sur les structures corporelles du travailleur. Plus le chargement est important, meilleure devrait être sa répartition afin de ne pas le concentrer à un endroit.
