Lifting Heavy Objects QUICKGuide

Lifting at home and work

Know the risk points and your limits.  Awkward shapes and sizes, lifting overhead, and heavy weights all come with higher incidence of injury.  Not sure on the weight? Try pushing it on the ground first to gauge its weight.  It’s better to ask for help, or use a dolly, when it’s beyond something you can safely lift.
