Why is Safe Lifting training important?

Back injuries are the most common work-related medical problem in the United States.  The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that at least one million Americans experience a back injury annually and these injuries represent 20 percent of all injuries in the workplace.  Back injuries don’t only harm your back – they harm the bottom line, too.  It is estimated that back injuries cost Americans about $60 billion dollars each year and $15 billion is paid out in back related workers’ compensation claims annually.

Your back is vital to maintaining your overall good health and it’s easier to prevent a back injury than to treat one once you’ve injured it.  Protect your back by using sound lifting techniques and a common sense approach to lifting.  If you have any questions about safe lifting techniques speak with your supervisor or a member of management. Thanks for taking the time today to learn how to lift safely.
