Abstract
Injuries to muscles, tendons and joints can occur when: 1. Workers must reach or lift heavy objects from the ground or from far away from the body. 2. Workers remove equipment that is stored incorrectly, or has become tangled, or stuck How to prevent these injuries: 1. Provide storage locations and racks for equipment and materials. 2. Place the equipment as close as possible to the location of use. 3. Implement a policy of using mechanical equipment or more than one person to lift anything over 40 lbs. 4. Raise stored materials to eliminate heavy lifting from ground level.
