Back Safety Training for Office Workers

As you are well aware back injuries don’t only occur in construction or industrial environments. No….back injuries can and do occur with your office based employees too. We have created a specific video for office workers on back safety which speaks directly to them and their specific needs. This office worker back safety video will help you prevent back injuries among your office workers.

Office workers might be lifting boxes of copy paper, sit at their desks for long periods, or type continuously which all have the potential for injuring your back or neck in one form or another. This back safety training video for office workers teaches several key ideas to your office based employees:

  • The importance of good posture and why we should prevent “slouching” or “hunching over” while at our desks
  • An overview of how your back works and what it is made up of (cervical, thoracic, and lumbar areas)
  • The importance of “neutral positions” and how they can prevent injury
  • How to sit properly and use the best ergonomics while sitting at your desk
  • The differences between bending at the waist and bending at the knees while we lift items in the office
  • What are the best practices when it comes to safe lifting in an office environment?
While industrially related back injuries occurring at a rate of more than 1,000,000 per year, a good (but often forgotten) portion of those are office employees. Make sure you are protecting yourself and your workforce by proper training - this office worker back safety training video will do just that for your office staff.

This training video teaches good body mechanics and what to watch out for to keep your office workers backs safe while they complete their jobs. Both of those are important pieces of any employer safety training program. The back safety video is just under 16 minutes long. In addition to the DVD this product is also offered as a USB and available in an English or Spanish language version. We also offer this product as part of our online safety training program.
