Plasterboards

#1
Hi, I'm new to plastering and I was recently asked to pick up some Plasterboards and put them onto the second floor of a house. When, I picked one of them up I found it a bit difficult to do so and I was unable to take them up the stairs without damaging them at the bottom.

Does anyone have any tips, in regards to picking up the plasterboards and also any tips in regards to taking them upstairs without damaging them at the bottom?

Cut the board into 8 pieces. Take them up one at a time then stick them together with your tampon wrappers.

Hi, guys thank you for all of your replies.

I just want ask: does picking plasterboards, even big ones, become easier over time and also if you find it difficult to pick up plasterboards, even if you are a complete beginner at your job, then can you get fired?

The trolls are getting worse. It’s like they’re not even trying to hide it anymore.. I feel slightly insulted.

When I was sixteen years old and started on site 8x4's were taped together in pairs. You were just expected to get on and move them.

What you need to do is pick them up in such a way as not to bump the bottom on the stairs. That way, the bottom won't get damaged.

Now in return, could you please tell me why stairs and inside and steps are outside?

We always pick the big boards up 2 of us going upstairs , as they are a nightmare on your own and can be a struggle if the stairs are tight (not much room)
