Prior to you carry a major object, consider by means of your activity. Decide where by you are going to place the object and how you may get it there. If an object is also major to carry safely and securely, check with someone to support you. If achievable, crack down a load into lesser units.

When lifting an object from the ground, stand close to the object. Do not carry from a standing position with your waistline bent or your knees locked.

A single possibility for appropriate lifting is to kneel, resting a single knee on the ground.
