RESTORE SAFETY PRACTICES

  • Heavy objects should be placed on the bottom shelf. This prevents tipping over.
  • It is never acceptable to force an item into a customer's vehicle, even if they tell you to. Habitat does not want to be responsible for damage to a customer's vehicle.
  • Product must be stored at least 18 inches from sprinkler heads.
  • All spills, messes, etc. must be cleaned up immediately and caution signs placed out.
  • You must maintain 3 points of contact on a ladder. This can be 2 feet and 1 hand OR 1 foot and 2 hands.
  • Ensure you use proper lifting techniques: lift with your knees, not your back.
  • Always ensure you can comfortably handle the weight of an item before lifting that item.
  • The only person allowed to tie down a ReStore purchase to a vehicle is the customer who purchased it. ReStore staff or volunteers may not do so.
  • A volunteer can use dollies, hand truck and carts but NOT forklifts. You must have a license for a forklift.
  • Always keep the dock door shut when not in use. This helps prevent accidents.
  • Always lift with your legs, not your back. This is called the "Power Position"
