Redesign the container so it has handles, grips, or handholds.
Hold the container close to the body.
Don't carry more than you can handle. To reduce the weight of the load, use a smaller container.
Wear proper size gloves that fit. Gloves with rubber dots on the surface
can increase grip stability on slippery surfaces.
Caution: Be aware that gloves can reduce your grip strength up to 60 percent depending on the material they are made of and how many pairs you wear at once.
Increase the size of the bucket or pail handle with padding or a clamp-on handle.
Get co-worker assistance when necessary. Discuss your plan so you don't have surprise movements.
