Lifting and Carrying for Employees and Volunteers

Tip Sheet

Before you pick up a carton or load, do you ask yourself these questions?

Is this too heavy for me to lift and carry alone?

How high do I have to lift it?

How far do I have to carry it?

Am I trying to impress anyone by lifting this?

If you feel that the lift is beyond your ability, contact your supervisor or ask another employee to assist you.
