Lifting Technique

Your manager is obligated to ensure that you are receive instruction in correct lifting- and carrying technique.
Do not lift or carry bundles of newspapers that are thicker than 20-25 cm. This is equivalent to 12 kg.
If you need to lift more than this, you have to receive special instruction before doing so.
The most you should lift at one time is 25 kg, and only if the lifting conditions are very good.
This means that you have to hold the newspaper bundles close to you, distributing weight on both feet, so that you stand in a good position. Be careful not to twist og bend your back.
