Summary

Use a wide stance, a wide grip on the shovel, and try to keep your back straight and upright. [...] Keep the load close to your body to reduce strains. [...] Keep the heaviest side of the load next to your body to avoid uneven forces on the spines. [...] Ensure the number of staff is in proportion to the weight of the load and the difficulty of the lift. [...] Ensure the load is shared equally so as not to shift to one person.
