Did you know that your back muscles aren’t designed for lifting heavy weights and that’s why so many people are suffering from back injuries?
These injuries can cause short term pain to a long-term injury and can put you in recovery from weeks to months at a time which isn’t ideal!
Loading and unloading of heavy items and working on uneven surfaces will put you at risk of developing muscular related issues such as such as lower back pain.
Many jobs fall into the categories of performing these lifting and loading tasks and that’s by following some simple steps, you will minimise the impact of heavy lifting:
- Train yourself on how to handle loads
- Ensure you take regular breaks to reduce physical fatigue
- Use powered machines that help to reduce or eliminate the risk such as the Makinex Powered Hand Truck.

“We use the PHT regularly around the branch lifting brick saws, Generators and other small equipment. I use to wake up sore in the mornings with back pain from all the lifting of equipment, and I don’t seem to have that problem anymore now that I use the PHT”.
