Whenever you need to move a heavy load with a handtruck, be sure to:

•  Wear heavy-duty work gloves with a good grip.  ANSI-approved steel-toed shoes are also recommended.

•  Place the heaviest objects on the bottom.

•  To avoid back strain, use proper lifting techniques in loading and unloading.

•  Store the load well forward, with weight borne on the axle.

•  Make sure you can see over the load. When the load passes chin level, the chance of an accident increases dramatically.

•  Push, don’t pull.

•  Think about the route in advance; plan for doorways, blind corners, etc.

•  Watch out for pedestrians and vehicles, objects on the floor, obstruction in the way, and the edges of platforms or docks.

•  Park the handtruck out of the way.  Don’t leave it in an aisle or blocking an emergency exit.
