We recommend that the containers for the shelves are packed at a weight that the shelf user can easily lift the containers at least head height. Use only a sturdy “step” ladder positioned so that you are walking toward the shelf. Place the ladder so the top is at least two or three feet away from the shelf. It can be helpful to hand containers to others on the ground. Avoid twisting while lifting.
