Sliding, pushing and pulling loads


  • A greater force can be applied using pushing and pulling rather than lifting, as your body weight is an advantage
  • Pushing is better than pulling, easier to use your body weight
  • Surface on which a load is pulled may create friction
  • Position of handles should allow an upright position, not bent over
  • Forces used should not be too high and should be steady and predictable
