OSHA's Guide to Loading Bottled Water

Potential Hazard:

Loading bottled water onto water coolers exposes employees to several risks. A bottle weighs approximately 48 pounds. To load a bottle, the employee must lift it up, over and onto the water cooler (while trying to avoid spilling the bottle). This is an awkward task that places strain on the employee's back, shoulders, arms and legs (Fig. 1-2). Another hazard is that employees may slip and fall as a result of spilled water.

Possible Solution:

Provide a bottled water install (Fig 3-6). The battery operated, rechargeable machine transports, lifts and loads five gallon bottles. The machine handles the transporting, lifting and loading of the bottles, thus eliminating exposure to heavy lifting and water spillage.
