Material Handling, Storage & Elevated Surfaces

Material Handling & Storage

Because the variation of materials, methods for moving them and locations for storage are so diverse across campus, the best comprehensive guide to evaluating needs departmentally and training affected faculty, staff and students is the OSHA Material Storage and Handling publication.

 

Elevated Surfaces

Elevated surfaces used for storage, meeting places or other purposes such as mezzanines or loft areas, must be of an approved design and rated for load capacity. An engineer must do the load rating and it needs to be posted in the area.
