According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year, and back injuries account for one of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. While all back injuries will never be eliminated, incorporating this course as part of a comprehensive workplace safety training and ergonomics initiative is an important step to protect and educate employees. The course starts by demonstrating how the back works. It continues to depict various kinds of back injuries, and best practices for adopting a better posture, lifting safely, and taking care of your back all the time. Utilize this course with all your staff, especially those who are lifting and moving heavier materials as part of their duties, to help them prevent on-the-job back injuries.
