1. The use of trolleys can reduce human lifting and back fatigue, they are usually the best choice for the following activities:
Loading and unloading bulky cargo;
Reduce the number of trips during the transport of goods.
2. Select the appropriate trolley at work to determine the weight and size it can be used to carry goods:
Special trolleys are only used for special handling purposes (e.g. trolleys with bottom brackets can be used to carry round containers);
Determine your handling route and remove any obstructions;
Wear safe and non-slip shoes--- recommend using SAFETY Society ANSI-approved safety shoes to protect your feet from heavy falls and trolley wheels;
Wear gloves to get good friction;
Avoid wearing fat, loose clothes that can trip you up and get you hurt by the wheels of the trolley.
3. Use the appropriate techniques to load and unload with a trolley
Bend your knees and straighten your back, using your legs instead of your back to do this;
Don't push too hard, or the sudden lifting will hurt your back.
4. Maintain the balance and stability of the goods when unloading
Heavier goods are placed at the bottom;
Do not exceed the height of your line of sight when stacking a pile of goods;
Place the goods towards the front end of the bearing, not exceeding the handlebars of the cart, before carrying heavy objects;
Make sure that the weight has stabilized and will not be shaken or overturned from side to side;
Instruments handling large volumes or precision must be bundled and fastened.
5. Operate the cart to get the minimum physical fatigue and maximum maneuverability
Grip the handle;
Bend your knees and keep your back straight;
Clear all the clutter from your way forward;
Push and walk, do not run;
Take the way of pushing, do not pull, so that the operation is not difficult;
You can only walk backwards if you need to enter a small space;
Don't use your feet to try to brake to stop the cart.
