Health and safety

Good advice for your health and safety

Health and safety are also important during storage. When you store items at Boxly, you also have to think about yourself. We have a lot of experience and are happy to share our tips with you.

Good shoes and suitable clothing
Incorrect clothing, especially shoes, can lead to accidents when changing and storing. Good footing with good footwear is very important. Flat, non-slip and tight shoes are the most comfortable and offer the best comfort when carrying heavy objects.

Do not pack boxes too heavily
Do not pack the bridle boxes completely with books or other heavy objects. It is best to put some heavy books at the bottom of the box and lighter things, e.g. textiles, on top. The cardboard boxes are designed for a specific load capacity. If too many kilos go in, the box will break down more quickly and the overload can lead to back and joint injuries.
Take care when lifting and carrying boxes and follow a few basic rules: bend your knees when lifting heavy loads from the floor, do not lift from the hips and do not twist your spine.
Better to run once more than to lift too much at once. Always make sure that the view is not impaired.

Secure the load
Hand trolleys are available for heavy objects. It is best to distribute the load evenly, the trolley is easier to steer.

Stacking in the storage room
When stacking your boxes in the storage room, always place the larger, heavier boxes at the bottom to create a stable foundation. Stack the lighter boxes on top.

Keep the way clear
How often do you have to go to the storage room? If you regularly fetch and deliver things, it’s easier if you keep a path clear and don’t have to climb over boxes and crates every time. Frequently used items should also be stored in an accessible place.
