Lifting heavy items is a leading cause of injury in the workplace. Construction workers report back pain in higher numbers than all other industries combined, and back injuries are the major cause of disability among middle-aged construction workers.
Handling and lifting heavy materials can cause back sprains, pulled muscles, elbow injuries, shoulder injuries, and hernias.
In this course, you'll discover the causes of these injuries, understand the factors that increase your injury risk, and learn to recognize hazardous overexertion. We'll also explain the effective control measures to reduce your risk, including the "Power Zone" strategy.
