Don't Twist at the Waist When Lifting Banner

When lifting and moving a load, keep the following things in mind:

  • Stand close to the load, facing the direction you plan to move.
  • Balance yourself, keeping your feet an appropriate distance apart and flat on the floor.
  • Keep your arms straight and maintain a good grip on the load.
  • Tighten your stomach muscles and tuck in your chin.
  • Lift up by bending at the knees, keeping your back straight and letting the muscles in your thighs do the bulk of the lifting.
  • Move in a smooth, slow manner, avoiding sudden, jerky motions.
  • Avoid twisting your body. If you must change direction, use your feet and legs to turn in the direction you need to go.
  • Place the load down slowly and carefully.

Back injuries impact more than 1 million workers each year and twisting while lifting increases the risk of injury. This banner will remind employees to follow safe lifting practices to keep their backs in good shape.
