WATCH YOUR BACK
a guide tolifting
I’m using my back instead of my legs
Using a trolley is the way to go!
Keep the load close to the body
No worries mate ten feet tall and bulletproof!
I think I need a ladder?
Don’t double stack
Rolling along is O.K.
Single lift – no!
Only a few at a time
Posture is important
Use your knee for support
Kneel beside the bed – don’t use your back
Keep it close to the body
Pushing too high and upright
