Protect Your Employees' Backs with Safe Lifting Training

Written by on 7/19/2017 3:24 AM in , , , . It has 1 Comments.

Proper lifting techniques are extremely effective at reducing the risk of back injuries and downtime. Are you stressing the importance of good lifting habits on-site? If your employees don’t know safe lifting techniques, they can’t use them.

The Art of Safe Lifting

1. With your feet shoulder-width apart, approach the load, placing one foot slightly in front of the other for balance.

2. Squat down, bending at the knees (not at the waist). Be sure to keep your back as vertical as possible through the process, tucking your chin.

3. Grasp of the object firmly before beginning to lift.

4. Slowly straighten your legs. Lift slowly, and avoid twisting your body. If you must turn, use your feet, not your torso.

5. As you move with the object, keep it as close to your body as possible. (As the load is shifted away from your body, stress in the lumbar region is increased.)

6. Follow these procedures in reverse to put the object back down.

How Can You Further Protect Workers?

Know Your Worker’s Lifting Habits
Frequency and type of lifting, as well as duration of activities also play a role in lifting-related injuries, as do body size, age, and fitness/health. Carefully selecting and training workers for necessary tasks is key.

Make Work Easier
Via the incorporation of handles/baskets for stability, adjusted storage heights, and the addition of mechanical aids such as pneumatic lifts and conveyors to reduce lifting-related workplace injury.
