TTS-001: The Technician Training Shorts series provides an opportunity to schedule a training session for staff to view a 10 to 15-minute recording and then use the active learning exercises provided to enhance the learning experience - either immediately after the presentation or later.

Animal care staff have duties that may require lifting heavy or bulky items, such as feed, bedding, cages, trash, or large animals. The Lifting Safety Technician Training Short provides information on the challenges of performing these tasks and ways to minimize injury if these tasks are performed improperly. Staff will learn:

  1. The basics of lifting ergonomics
  2. How to lift safely and avoid injury
  3. Practical tips to improve lifting conditions and reduce risks of lifting injuries.

Included with the recording are two active learning exercises:

  1. Stock Your Shelf: This is a game where staff can design the layout of supplies on stockroom shelving to optimize ergonomic safety.
  2. Lifting Safety Game Quiz: A PowerPoint presentation with 16 quiz questions and suggestions on ways to play the game.
