Your safety thought for this morning is…

 

 

Most of us forget the importance of our backs for the enjoyment of a normal, happy and successful life. However, the back contains one of the most critical muscle groups in the body, as well as the spinal cord and associated vertebrae and disks.  Back injuries are cumulative: a lot of small injuries lead up to a big one. Therefore, it is important to remember the key elements of proper lifting.

  

Preparing to Lift:

  • Do you need help? Get help if needed (more people, lift equipment)
  • Do you need to stretch before preparing to lift?
  • Determine the load capacity.
  • Determine your ability to handle the load.
  • Wear appropriate shoes.
  • If the surface is rough, wear gloves.
