Moving can be very dangerous. While trying to pack and get things in order you can easily hurt yourself or others. Protecting yourself during your move is just as important an objective as protecting your belongings. Here are a few things you can do to stay safe:
Boxes have weight limits and exceeding these limits can cause back injury or strain. Stick to the weight limit and you should be good to go.
Wear comfortably clothes that will not create a hazard.
Wrap your knives and other sharp objects
Bubble wrap and newspaper is an easy way to protect yourself from sharp objects.
Follow proper lifting protocols
When picking heavy loads up off the ground, bend at your knees—not your waist.
Use a dolly
These will do wonders!
Keep a clear pathway
A cluttered pathway can do great harm. Make sure it is clear to protect you and your movers.
