Certified Back Injury & Muscle Injury Specialist Course Train The Trainer
Awareness of the importance of back safety in the workplace is on the rise, as repetitive motion and back injuries plague more than one million U.S. workers every year. Back injury is the cause of one in five workplace injuries or illnesses and onefourth of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries, costing employers billions.
Preventing on-the-job back injuries and helping your workers keep their backs safe is a constant effort. Providing your employees with back safety and proper lifting training including enforcing and teaching safe lifting techniques, good body mechanics and other methods to avoid back stress and strain is an important step in the fight against back injury.
