Over one million back injuries occur in the workplace annually. This makes "bad backs" a major cause of days missed from work, lost wages, and decreased productivity -- but back injuries do not have to happen. To avoid them, employees need to understand how their backs "work" and the types of hazards they are likely to encounter in their job that can cause back injuries. They also need to know the safe practices they can follow to protect their backs both at work and at home. To help address these potential problems, this program is designed to present the fundamentals of back safety in industrial environments.
