Working in the food and hospitality industry, many workers are expected to carry heavy loads and loose items. An injury here can not only be uncomfortable to the server, it can make it nearly impossible to do their job.

Reduce risk to servers with these posture modifications:

  • Carry trays with a straight wrist
  • Support the weight of the tray on both the hand and forearm, not the wrist
  • Keep the upper arm vertical
  • Carry the tray close to the body
  • Balance the load on the tray
  • Alternate hands used to carry items
