  1. First things first, do not lift objects that are too heavy for you. Injuries occur when we try to do more than our bodies are capable of, so if an object is too heavy ask for help. 
  2. Stand close to the item with your feet spaced shoulder width apart. You need a good base and solid balance before you attempt to lift and move a heavy object.
  3. Bend at the knees and squat down-  DO NOT BEND AT THE WAIST. 
  4. Get a firm grip on the object before attempting to lift.
  5. Slowly and steadily begin to straighten your legs. It is important to keep your spine straight and to engage your core when lifting.
  6. Do not twist while lifting. Keep your shoulders in line with your hips, and keep your spine aligned straight. 
  7. Once you have lifted the object and are standing straight, keep the object as close to your body as possible. The farther away from your body you hold an object the more force you need and the more strain your put on your back.
