When transporting ESD sensitive components
such as replacement parts or parts to be returned to Dell, it is critical
to place these parts in anti-static bags for safe transport.
Adhere to the following guidelines when lifting heavy weight equipment:
CAUTION: : Do not
lift greater than 50 pounds. Always obtain additional resources or
use a mechanical lifting device.
- Get a firm balanced
footing. Keep your feet apart for a stable base, and point your toes
- Tighten stomach muscles.
Abdominal muscles support your spine when you lift, offsetting the
force of the load.
- Lift with your legs,
not your back.
- Keep the load close.
The closer it is to your spine, the less force it exerts on your back.
- Keep your back upright,
whether lifting or setting down the load. Do not add the weight of
your body to the load. Avoid twisting your body and back.
- Follow the same techniques
in reverse to set the load down.
