Pushing and pulling

Pushing and pulling

If possible, it’s preferable to push a load than pull a load. This is the safer option and it prevents you running yourself over. The equipment used needs to be fit for purpose and well maintained.

  • Plan the route to be taken and ensure the equipment is suitable
  • The handles should be between waist and shoulder height
  • The power should be generated from your legs
  • You should travel at walking pace to keep the load under control
  • Sloped ground should be covered with caution. Going up a slope will require extra fore to move the load. Going down the slope will require extra force to control the load. This may require assistance from a second person.
