Wear steel toed boots, lift with your legs, ask for help if the weight is too great. Usually warehouses will give an orientation class and tell you how to stay safe and not hurt yourself.

I know quite a few females who have done that sort of work. I agree with the first post. Wear steel toed boots. Lift with your legs NOT THE BACK. You can seriously injure your back if you do that. If the weight is too heavy for you, don't be afraid to ask for help.

They're no less safe for males. As long as you follow basic safety guidelines, you should be fine.

They are just as safe for women as they are men.
