Plan the lift www.thedetaildevils.com.au © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ® • Try to break down the load into smaller parts. • Check the pathway for obstacles and clear these before beginning the lift. • Test the weight of the load by lifting one corner. If you feel that it is too heavy or awkward, stop and ask for help or use a trolley to move the item.

Performing the lift • Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and in a staggered stance • Move in close to the load • Bend your knees, keep your head upright and maintain the spine’s natural curves • Pull the load close to your body • Secure your grip • Use a smooth controlled motion to lift the load • Avoid twisting or turning your body when lifting and be sure to use your feet to change direction www.thedetaildevils.com.au © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®

Setting the load down • Stand with your feet apart and in a staggered stance • Get as close as possible to the area you will place the load • Bend your knees, keep your head upright and maintain the spine’s natural curves • Keep the load close • Once the load is where you want it release your grip. Always ensure that the load is secured before you release your grip www.thedetaildevils.com.au © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
