Have your employee’s ever had training on how to protect their back or how to lift properly?  I’m sure they have….  However, it’s about much more than knowing the “right way to lift.”  Proper training will show your employees the tips and tools they need, in real world situations, on how to prevent back injury.  This training video focuses on teaching your employees a “Better Way to Lift”.  As you know, lifting it part of most jobs whether it’s lifting heavy items as part of your normal job, or, lifting things that are in the course of your job.  Office workers lift, move, and push items as often as other types of workers – they just lift different things.   This video will teach all of your employees, regardless of their job title, a “Better Way to Lift.”

The video will teach the following core concepts:

  • At work, who are the parties that play in role in back safety?  (It’s a “team” effort in that Management sets the tone, Supervisors reinforce and support safe behaviors, and employees make it happen)
  • What is the role of leadership of a Company in regards to back safety?
  • What are the things that make lifting an easier task?
  • What are some key concepts that every employee should know when it comes to back injury prevention?  (Things like stagger your stance, bend your knees, arch your back, tighten your abdomen, bring your head up, and grasp the load firmly).   However, are these concepts that are historically part of back injury prevention training always realistic?  In addition to these concepts what are the other things that our employees should be thinking of when it comes to protecting their back from injury?
  • Is lifting something “heavy” the only way an employee can injure their back? (no…)
  • What role do “bad habits” have in relation to sustaining a back injury?
  • What are the positions of the body our employees should keep in mind while performing material handling tasks?
  • What is the “Power Position” and why should employees know about this concept?
  • What are the three principles that every employee needs to know to help keep their back safe while working?

All employees lift items at work regardless of their occupation. Teaching employees A Better Way to Lift and how to prevent back injury benefits both the employer and the employee alike.  This training video is available in both a DVD or USB stick option, and has a runtime of 13 minutes.
