    • It’s National Safety Month! Week 5 Theme: Manual Material Handling Safety

      We’re wrapping up the last week of safety month with manual material handling safety. There are several risks posed by manual material handling. The most common reported injuries involve strains and sprains, while the most frequent injuries occur to the back, hips, neck, shoulders, and knees. The first thing to consider with manual material handling is where the object is initially picked up and then set down.

Due to supply chain issues during the COVID-19 pandemic, 61% of U.S. hiring decision-makers say their company had to alter its hiring practices because of the national supply chain issue. Around 32% say they have hired specifically for logistics/supply chain positions this year. This sector is expected to grow by 30% between 2020 and 2030, much faster than the national average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Education Logisticians may qualify for some positions with an associate degree. However, due to complex logistics and supply chains, companies prefer to hire workers who have at least a bachelor’s degree. Logisticians typically have a bachelor’s degree in logistics and supply chain management, business, or a related field. …
