Furniture removers work at a high level of risk. Heavy lifting puts workers in danger. Moving furniture affects the entire body; muscles that are not used on a regular basis are used. As workers bend, pull, push, or reach to lift or move a big object, the shoulders, arms, and legs are immediately affected. There are several hazards involved, including muscle injury, strains, sprains, rips, the chance of bone fractures or breaks, and even worse, heart damage or strain. Considering the high level of risk involved in the occupation, furniture removers do not qualify for income protection insurance.
