Abstract
The status and current research needs of selected aspects of manual materials handling are assessed. Recommendations for research on lifting and moving aids, packages and containers, worker physical characteristics, bulk materials handling, and nonelectric hand tools are provided. Available research on manual trucks and tractors, conveyors, hoists, ropes and chains, and manual materials handling without the aid of mechanical devices is summarized along with references to periodicals. Information is included on injuries incurred while lifting, preventive X-ray diagnosis, methods and standards, the biomechanics of lifting, and experimental projects. The author recommends that an interdisciplinary group be established to provide guidelines for further epidemiological and laboratory research into manual materials handling.
