Proper Lifting Techniques

Following proper lifting techniques is important for minimizing strain on the body. Proper lifting techniques involve using the legs and hips to lift rather than the back. People with limitations in lifting need to be especially aware of proper lifting techniques. Use of team lifting is also important in the event of lifting and carrying heavy objects. For more information on proper lifting practices, see OSHA's Materials Handling: Heavy Lifting Guide.
