You may have a guest at your home and they ask you to turn the table over to them. You were expecting that they will be given enough room to maneuver around the table and you are not thinking that you need to let them turn over the table to move around it. In this article I am going to provide some suggestions about how to properly and safely move someone who is standing on a table or on the floor.
The most effective way to move someone is to place their legs in the space between their feet and the bottom of the table. This will allow you to lift their legs slightly to allow for ease in turning. You will also be able to have good control over where they are placed.
If there are tight spots on the table, you can use a small sturdy chair to help you get around them. You do not want to use a lightweight chair as the weight of the person will cause them to tip over backwards. If you are moving a large person, you may need two chairs to support the person. You can also use a carpet knife under the seat of the chair to help you easily slide under the seat.
The first thing you need to do is to give them a little room on the table and make sure that their feet are even with the floor. Next, slide your chair under the table. Then sit down in the chair and position your feet so that your person’s feet are touching the floor. Once you have placed your feet in the right place, you can begin to slide the chair away from the table.
As you slide the chair away, hold the chair firmly in place and give your feet some room. As the chair begins to move away, you should push your foot firmly into the back of the chair. When the body of the chair begins to move forward, you should stop, put your foot back in the back of the chair, and slide the chair back toward the table.
As you are turning over the table to move it, you will want to give the front of the table a slight push to the side. As the person reaches the front of the table, you will want to lean to the side and slide the chair back toward the table. Continue to do this on the other side of the table until you are ready to turn the table over and place them on the floor.
While you are waiting for the other person to finish reaching the front of the table, you should stand behind them and roll them onto the floor. Now, you can lay them down with the table in the position that they are standing. Make sure that they are level with the floor and give them a firm push forward.
To give them a good starting grip, you can roll the person onto their back and gently work the table into their hands. They will usually grab the floor to hold on to, but if they do not, you can put the table in between their legs and make them grab the table.
Now, slowly place the person down on the floor and continue to help them stand up. The proper time to turn tables is when a person is ready to turn them over. To make sure that the person is comfortable, you can slowly roll them out onto their sides.
Keep in mind that you should only move the person back and forth a few inches before they are comfortable. After they have rolled over the table, give them a firm push towards the corner of the room. When they have turned around, you can roll them back to their original spot and place them on the floor.
Once they are on the floor, place a towel or blanket on the floor next to them and make sure that they are on the set. Then, sit down in the chair and start to move the table towards the corner. As soon as the game ends, help them out of the chair and they will be able to walk away without any difficulties. The next time you have a guest, you can turn tables using these simple moves to make them easier to move around.
