All rights reserved. 5 of 14 Stage 2 Assess the load – one-person lift •Determine the weight. •Look for sharp edges. •See if the weight is evenly distributed. •Keep the heaviest side to your body. •Decide how to hold the load.

  8. 8. Level 1 Diploma in Wall and Floor Tiling © 2013 City and Guilds of London Institute. All rights reserved. 8 of 14 Stage 4 continued Lifting • If lifting from the ground, make maximum use of your legs. • Keep your back straight but inclined forward. • As the lift proceeds and the legs are straightened, the back returns to vertical position. Positioning of feet and bending of knees are the key factors in maintaining a straight back.
  9. 9. Level 1 Diploma in Wall and Floor Tiling © 2013 City and Guilds of London Institute. All rights reserved. 9 of 14 Stage 5 Correct grip • Take a firm grip by using the palms of the hands and roots of fingers. • Taking weight on the finger tips will create pressure at the end of fingers and could strain muscles and tendons in the arms. A full palm grip will reduce muscle stress to the arms and decrease the possibility of the load slipping.
  10. 10. Level 1 Diploma in Wall and Floor Tiling © 2013 City and Guilds of London Institute. All rights reserved. 10 of 14 Stage 6 Lifting smoothly •Thrust from the back foot and straightening of the knees will move the body forwards and upwards – the lifting person becomes briefly off balance. •This should be immediately countered by bringing the back foot forward as if walking. •The lift is now completed. Forward movement results in a smooth transition from lifting to carrying.

But stop first, do not set down while walking. Setting the load down •Use the correct stance for lifting and set the load down gently.
