MoveSMART® Client Assessment: Advancing Hand Safety

We customize your training materials with your corporate logo and with still images from your workplace.


We use your logo throughout the training materials. For quality reproduction we need a digital file with the client logo in full color at the highest possible resolution in the largest possible size. Include any corporate guidelines for usage, with any color specifications. We also request a printed sample of your logo (business card, stationary, etc.).


We use a minimum of twenty-eight still images in your training materials, in color, and in the highest resolution possible.


Guidelines and Examples

Inline Elbows
Take photographs that emphasize the hands, forearms, and elbows in pushing, pulling, lifting, and using hands. Watch for p.p.e. and avoid rings, watches, bracelets, etc. We also reinforce Smart Hands in this section. Please send us some photos emphasizing the “power fingers” (little finger and ring finger) in pushing, pulling, holding tools, etc. – where employees have their “Eyes on their Hands” during the task. Best if you can get their full-on face and hands.

LongArm Reaching
Look for examples of employees reaching out and away (into the Yellow or Red Zones) while anchoring with their opposite hand. Look for pushing, pulling, or lifting with one hand. We will also reinforce Mental SuperGlue and bracing in this section. Please send us some pictures that show someone leaning over to reach for something, with their “off” hand locked onto a safe spot on a table, equipment frame, etc. Watch for body position, avoid shots that show twisting or locked knees. You can also show workers bracing with one hand against a leg or stationary object to lift or push.
A3 A4


Here we need pictures that show employees working overhead or in awkward positions. Look for a slight weight shift to one side with knees bent, back straight, and both heels touching the ground. This might happen when using tools, pushing, pulling, lifting, or reaching. The direction of force/travel should be parallel with a line between the feet rather than at a right angle to this “line of power.”
A5 A6


These photographs should show the elbow(s) close to side of the body while either pushing, pulling, lifting two-handed, or carrying two-handed.
