I Was Right About The Back Injury Prevention Course

When I introduced the Back Injury Prevention Course three years ago, I promised that I could teach a course that would reduce the risk of on-the-job back injury by managing a risk factor, poor body mechanics.

Unique to any back injury prevention approach that I have been able to find, I also promised that an employer would be able to measure their risk of job-related back injuries among employees.

There is a thought process behind why I chose body mechanics, or how to bend and lift, that I will share in another Post soon, but the results so far go something like this:

Before the Course: less than 9% of the employees successfully demonstrate how to properly bend and lift by passing a screening maneuver.

After the Course: almost two-thirds (64%) successfully demonstrate how to properly bend and lift.
