Why ?

Most back injuries are the results of everyday wear and tear over time rather than a single traumatic event. Repeated bending forward or backwards, twisting, awkward posture, heavy lifting over rough or uneven grounds and prolonged vibration exposure, can all contribute to back pain and injuries.  

To reduce back injuries on the job, a preventive program is necessary. An effective program will cover points such as; anatomy, risk factors, workplace posture, lifting techniques, ergonomics and exercise. This training is intended to provide the basic information for an effective back care program.
