Don't carry unstable loads
Do not attempt to carry loads which are unstable such as the one shown in this picture. If the load looks unstable an attempt may be made to tidy it up but in so doing the manual handling regulations should be observed. If the load cannot be tidied up easily then it should be reported to the supervisor.
