Preventing Back Injuries from Lifting and Carrying

  • Always use mechanical equipment like a dolly to lift heavy objects, if at all possible.
  • Never try to lift an item weighing over 50 pounds by yourself.
  • Plan your lifts; make sure the path is clear and you are facing the direction of the travel prior to lifting.
  • Tuck in the chin to keep the back as straight as possible while lifting.
  • Lift with the strong leg muscles, not your back. Ask for help with heavy or awkward objects.
  • Avoid twisting your body while carrying an object.
  • Coordinate and practice team lifting prior to the lift.
