  • Use fitting and appropriate transport material.
  • When lifting think about the strain on your body. Ask your supervisor or health & safety coordinator for training in lifting. Do not lift up more than you comfortably can; a guideline is 25 kg. Lift less if you are in a slanting or bent-over posture.
  • If you are pregnant, avoid lifting as much as possible.
  • Stack the material to be transported safely and make sure no parts are sticking out.
  • Adjust your speed to the situation and take the weight of the load into consideration.
