Lifting Techniques / Back Injury Prevention

Proper lifting techniques are essential to injury prevention when it comes to back injuries.  Correct body alignment, when lifting heaving objects, whether lifting at work or in the process of one’s day, is crucial in preventing back injury.  The safety training videos in this section provide a guide on how to lift heavy objects through correct lifting and carrying techniques.  Lifting a load without following proper lift techniques results in over two million on-the-job preventable back injuries each year.
