Back Safety & Proper Lifting 

Back injuries account for 42% of all musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace. Four out of 5 of these injuries occurred when an employee was lifting. 64% occur in men and 36% occur in women. Back injuries account for 2.9 million lost days of work per year in the United States. With this being said, lifting mechanics and back safety is something every employer and employee should be aware of whether they work in a job requiring manual labor or a job that is more sedentary.

This month's article will discuss the causes, prevention and treatment of back injuries.
