Why Should You Take This Back Protection and Lifting Procedures Online Anytime Course?

Each year, 15% to 20% of the United States' population will suffer from lower back pain. Back pain is the second-leading cause of absenteeism in the workplace, behind only the common cold, and the most frequent trigger of workplace compensation claims in the United States. Yet back pain and injuries are preventable. And considering their high cost, measured in terms of lost wages, lower productivity, and a decline in the quality of life, instruction in how to protect the back and prevent back injuries is a necessary component of every employer's training program. This course provides general back safety awareness information regarding job specific hazards, safe work practices, and ergonomics. 


Intended Audience:

All employees, to include supervisors and managers, where work requires heavy lifting. 


Topics To Be Covered Include:

  • Identify the extent of back injury problems in the workplace
