Back Safety: Lifting
Lifting can strain or even injure your back. Follow these tips to keep your back safe while you bend, lift, and carry.
To carry an object:
Hold it close to your body.
Bend your knees slightly as you walk. The heavier the object, the more you should bend your knees.
Get help with heavy or unbalanced objects.
