NIOSH Manual Material Handling (MMH) Checklist Mobile App

Is your material handling compliant with National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) standards? You can find out by using this occupational safety app that guides you through the safety and health requirements.

This NIOSH material handling mobile app is not designed to be a comprehensive risk assessment technique but rather as a tool to quickly identify potential problem jobs to improve occupational safety and health for workers. Additional risk factors may exist that are not accounted for in this checklist. It is common practice to follow up checklist observations with more precise techniques to confirm problem risk factors. Try out the NIOSH material handling app, a much simpler alternative to filling out NIOSH material handling paperwork by hand.
