Spartans 61-53 LEAGUE RECORDS Win Loss Turbo Turtles 9 1 Spartans 7 3 Chargoggog 5 4 El Polo Loco 3 7 Zissou 0 9 USAG-KA SPORTS MATERIAL HANDLING TIPS—continued We must remember that the weight we can lift above shoulder height is much less than the weight we can lift below shoulder height. And the risk of injury to your back and shoulders is much higher than that of lifting from the ground. When lifting above shoulder height, this places you in the red zone as discussed in the Part 2 of this Safely Speaking series. Remember there is also more of a risk of the load falling on you should the load slip or become unbalanced. If possible lower the front portion of the load so that it is below shoulder height. Pivot the load off the shelf and let it come to a lower position changing the overhead lift to a shoulder lift. Always try to lower the load or raise yourself up to the load to keep the load in the green zone between the shoulders and waist. Try to raise the load up or down to the green zone with a forklift or other piece of equipment. 1. Before lifting from heights try to position the load so that it is below shoulder height. 2. Pivot the load off the shelf and let it lower to a lower position so that the overhead lift is changed to a shoulder lift. 3. Keep the heaviest part of the load closest to you. 4. Keep the proper curvature of the spine, and do not twist with the load. 5. If you are moving an item to an overhead position get an edges in place and slide the load to its position. Making it so you do not have to take the entire weight of the load. 6. Plan for an escape route just in case you lose control of the lift. Should you lose your grip use your escape route and allow the item to fall. Do not risk injury to save the load. U.S. Army photo by Jordan Vinson SAG-KA’s Hero of the Week HERO OF THE WEEK U
