Back Safety 101 – Orientation
Back pain is one of the leading causes of injury in both the workplace and general industry. It afflicts nearly two-thirds of the current workforce and is one of the most common reasons for missed work. This course will cover the following learning objectives:
HOW YOUR BACK WORKS
Your back is one of the central parts of your body and serves as the information highway for how transmissions are sent. Each action you do corresponds to a response in your back and can positively or negatively impact it.
CAUSES OF BACK PAIN
Back pain is a direct result of overexertion and over-straining. The repetitive nature of some tasks can quickly aggravate or create an injury.
SAFE LIFTING AND SITTING
Through lifting, carrying, and setting the load down, back safety begins with awareness and training. Sitting with proper posture, proper distance, and with your back against the chair are ways to avoid back pain just by sitting.
PREVENTION AND RELIEF
Developing habits which not only help aid against back injury, but also build up a tolerance to prevent it are the first steps in back safety. However, many additional factors, such as nutrition and exercise, play a major role in the back's ability to protect itself effectively.
This course is 13 minutes and 34 seconds in length. All DVDs include additional training materials for print, including a leadership guide, course exam and course answer sheet.
