  15. 7 Steps to Safe Lifting - Base Movement • 1st Assess the load – can you lift it safely? • 2nd Place your feet at ten-to-two • 3rd BEND you knees • 4th Back - KEEP IT STRAIGHT & UPRIGHT • 5th Neck & head – keep your chin up. • 6th Grip – “front knee, high hand, far corner” and “back knee, low hand, near corner”. • 7th Load - hold it in close to your pelvis. • Remember – use these good principles for lifting in different situations and don’t stick blindly to rules and procedures

  16. Points to remember: • Practicing good lifting technique does not enable you to lift more than you could before. It means that, whatever your individual capabilities, your chances of injury are reduced. • Good technique is just one of a number of control measures, within the hierarchy of control, that the employer has to put in place to reduce manual handling risks; it is not a panacea. • This is about a cultural change, about not accepting practices because that’s the way they’ve always been done.
