The purpose of the following information is to increase the awareness of the importance of practicing proper lifting techniques on a day-to-day basis. Most back injuries are caused by chronic exposure, not one-time incidents. The employer must be proactive and persistent in the correction of bad habits.
At the completion of our back injury prevention course students will understand several techniques that can be used to maintain a healthy back, via sizing up loads and properly judging limits, understanding the extreme forces placed on the back when not lifting correctly, and recognizing common pitfalls in everyday activities at work and home.
Course presentation may include: lecture, powerpoint, video, and/or student handouts.
All training is performed in accordance with Federal OSHA, applicable State-chartered OSHA, and other State Regulations and local Ordinances.
