KNOXVILLE, TN, USA, May 3, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The top agencies to find jobs hiring in Knoxville, TradesMax Staffing – Knoxville, released a white paper on the benefits of proper lifting techniques. Back injuries are responsible for one in five workplace injuries. Proper lifting techniques are essential for avoiding the painful and disabling injuries associated with poor lifting techniques. In the white paper that TradesMax Staffing released, it gave some tips on to lift correctly.
The first tip discussed preparation and planning for proper ergonomic lifting. “Assess the load and keep in mind what you can safely lift. Is the object too large? Can you get a firm grip on it?” state by Madison White, owner of TradesMax Staffing – Knoxville. “You must know where to put the load, ensuring the path is unobstructed, and the distance is not too far. Consider whether the lift is a two-person job or if you need a hand truck, dolly, pushcart, or another tool. Once you have a lifting plan, stretch and warm up your muscles. Loosen your back and stretch your hamstrings.”
The white paper mentions the second tip was correct lifting techniques. It stated to never bend forward when lifting a heavy object, continuing by stating to squat and secure the load and stand by straightening legs while keeping the back straight. The white paper also stated to remember that safe lifting involves: standing close to the load; planting feet shoulder-width apart; bending at hips and knees keeping the head up and straight; holding the load close; engaging core muscles; and finally never twist the torso when lifting. Lastly, the second tip mention avoiding raising a load that might obstruct vision while never lifting a heavy item above shoulder level.
The third tip was to how to carry a heavy load. “Once you lift your load, it is time to carry it. Maintain good ergonomics. Keep your load close to your body while keeping your shoulders aligned with your hips as you move,” stated by White. “If you can avoid twisting your trunk, do so. Take small steps and make directional changes with your feet.”
The final tip was setting heavy object down. The white paper that the Knoxville employment agency publish stated that, surprisingly, setting down a heavy object can be more dangerous than lifting it. One of the key mentioned was to reverse the lifting process and follow the same ergonomic lifting principles: keeping the load close and the back straight; squatting down, and bending only at the knees and hips; engaging the core by tightening the stomach muscles; kneeling on one knee; finally never rushing the lifting process.
