TLR stands for Transferring Lifting Repositioning and is designed to assist workers with identifying and managing/eliminating risks associated with assisting clients with mobility and moving general objects. TLR includes a thorough assessment process of self, environment/equipment, and client/object. TLR is developed to assist organizations with meeting the minimum requirements of Saskatchewan’s Occupational Health and Safety Legislation related to safe client handling and musculoskeletal injuries.
TLR’s core concept is: minimal amount of manual effort with the maximum use of equipment.

Reduce the severity of lost time related to musculoskeletal injuries
To meet the requirements of applicable Occupational Health and Safety Legislation
