Abstract
Five areas are outlined indicating the types of research activities currently underway with NIOSH support that will help in developing a standard for manual materials handling to help prevent or reduce the large number of back injuries. The areas deal with development of methods for assessing employees' muscular strength capability and its relationship to back injury; development of methods for identifying and preventing excessive strain associated with lighting tasks; identification of postures in lifting tasks conducive to back injury; evaluation of differences in materials handling capabilities according to sex and age; and evaluation of the effectiveness of vestibule training programs in reducing injuries associated with materials handling.
