According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year and back injuries account for one of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. It is estimated that 1/4 of all Workers Compensation claims involve back injuries, costing employers billions of dollars.
These figures do not begin to reflect the pain and suffering employees experience as a result of their injuries. Whether you have experienced a back injury or not, it is important to learn techniques and procedures that may help you prevent an injury.
VSI can customize a hands-on back safety training class to educate your employees on performing safe and healthy postures in their specific job tasks and environments. Back safety classes can also be combined with other safety topics.
