    How are you a preloader and you don't already know this? We are supposed to be able to regurgitate that information on command like obedient parrots. And be able to demonstrate the 8 keys to lifting and lowering using a box.

    Walk at a brisk pace don't run
    Establish firm footing
    Stay of belts ,chutes, and rollers
    Look, scan area for hazards.
    Adjust to conditions.

    The acronym for the 5 keys is WELDM here.

    Walk at a brisk pace don't run
    Establish form footing
    Look before you step, scan for hazards
    Don't walk on unsecured belts, rollers or slides
    Make adjustments based on changing weather conditions

    They want that here too. I refuse to relearn them that way. "The Man" will never make me

    It's the same steaming pile of crap....regardless of how it's molded. Like changing off routes to misloads to WIWCs (walk in wrong cars)

    Go to the center and ask if you can have a laminated card with all the keys printed on them. I am entirely too lazy to type all that out

    We use LEADS:

    Look before stepping
    Establish firm footing
    Adjust for changing conditions
    Don't run---walk at a brisk pace.
    Stay off moving belts, rollers or slides.
