Manual Material Handling

The Ergo-ology team has gained a competitive edge in the field of manual material handling through its unique history of working with professional weightlifters, athletes and industrial employees. By combining elements of sports performance, physical therapy, physical ergonomics and martial arts, Ergo-ology focuses on teaching manual material-handling techniques that optimize human capabilities and safe-lifting behaviors.

Manual Material Handling

“I highly recommend ergo-ology’s “Bootcamp” at your facilities as it is engaging and relevant for ALL Associates, and particularly eye-opening and purposeful for our “experienced” employees that may have developed incorrect lifting mechanics over the years.

The coolest part of the course is the video analysis that is used to visually show employees their movements during the 1:1 consultations. Great experience!”
