Planning your learningIt is important to plan your learning before you start because you may already have some of the knowledge and skills that are covered in this Learners Guide. This might be because: you have been working in the industry for some time, and/or you have already completed training in this area.

Together with your supervisor or trainer use the checklists on the following pages to help you plan your study program. Your answers to the questions in the checklist will help you work out which sections of this Learners Guide you need to complete. This Learners Guide is written with the idea that learning is made more relevant when you, the learner, are actually working in the industry. This means that you will have people within the enterprise who can show you things, discuss how things are done and answer any questions you have. Also you can practise what you learn and see how what you learn is applied in the enterprise. If you are working through this Learners Guide and have not yet found a job in the industry, you will need to talk to your trainer about doing work experience or working and learning in some sort of simulated workplace.

How do you assess risks arising from relocation of a load? What is manual materials handling?Shifting materials safely may make up the majority of the work the storepeople do in a warehouse. A large proportion of materials shifting may be done manually, depending on how your warehouse operates. Manual material handling is defined as: any activity requiring the use of force exerted by a person to lift, push, pull, carry or otherwise move, hold or restrain any person, animal or thing. The main methods used are: pushing, such as pushing a drum carrying, such as carrying a carton of stock lifting, such as lifting a box up onto a shelf reaching or holding, such as placing or passing stock onto higher shelving small, frequent tasks (repetitious) such a keyboard entries or loading small stock items from a shelf onto a pallet from one position.

What makes up load relocation risk assessment and why is it important?What is a hazard? A hazard is a source of potential loss or danger. In other words, it is an accident waiting to happen. It is up to everyone involved in the workplace to recognise hazards and fix them before the accident can happen. In particular, this is the employers responsibility. This rule is the basis of a safe and healthy workplace. This is done is by following these steps: risk identification risk assessment risk control.

What is a risk?A risk is the possibility of suffering harm or loss. This means doing something that is likely to cause some sort of damage or injury (harm or loss).
