What should not be done when lifting something that is heavy?

A Bending at the waist and using the back to pick up the object while keeping the legs straight

Never lift with the back is very important whenever lifting something that is heavy. This opens up the individual for possible injury and muscle strain. All of the other choices are tips in what should be done, including establishing a wide anchor point, turning only with the legs and feet and standing close to the object in order to reduce the amount of weight put on the arms.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
