Back Injury Prevention
In today’s work environment, back injuries account for nearly 20% of all injuries. But the cost of these injuries accounts for nearly 60% of all Workers Compensation Insurance cost.
The back injury prevention program has been developed to provide you with the information needed to help prevent the possibility of back injury. The program has been designed to meet requirements of OSHA as well as reinforce company policy on the prevention of back injuries.
A formal back injury prevention program should be established with all supervisors being trained in proper lifting techniques.
