Course Description

Do you work in an industrial setting? You know better than anyone else that your body takes a beating, but did you know that there are ways you can help minimize the wear and tear on your body over time - and also prevent injuries related to your work? Back injuries are avoidable.

Injuries to your back might happen quickly, or the effects of poor work practices – like equipment use and workspace ergonomics – might take their toll over time. Regardless, pain and injuries are preventable through hazard- and employee self-awareness, properly designed and maintained industrial work environments, and an overall understanding of the various sources of back strain. The effects of accumulated back trauma can cause loss of work, decreased efficiency and overall safety, mood changes, and even early career resignation.

This training teaches you to:

  • identify (and avoid) common hazards that contribute to back strain
  • better design your industrial workspace and better interact with your work environment (ergonomics)
  • and also how to catch early signs and symptoms of back injury.

If you work in an industrial setting - or have employees who do, take this training to be purposeful in your compliance with OSHA’s General Duty Clause by defusing ergonomic hazards, avoiding back injuries (and the resulting injury reporting process), and keeping yourself and your coworkers or employees safe and productive.
