Nobody wants to be in an accident on the job. This is why you need to be aware and take the proper precautions when performing your job functions each day. But there are a large number of people who forget to safely move, handle and store materials they work with every day, because the task may seem ordinary to them, not something they really need to be concerned with. In spite of this perception (or perhaps because of it) there are hundreds of thousands of materials handling accidents every year, ranging from small splinters, cuts or scrapes, to crushed fingers, hands and feet and even deaths. Ideal learners are all employees.
