Safe Lifting In Healthcare Environments For Office And Maintenance Personnel

Lifting and carrying objects and loads is a routine part of the workday for most healthcare office and maintenance personnel. However, doing it right away without thinking it through is also routine, which, as the course shows, can cause back injuries.

Illustrating how to avoid back pain and injuries when lifting and carrying, this course begins by teaching office and maintenance workers the back’s structure and how it affects all their motions and activities. The course continues to demonstrate lifting practices from below the waist lifting to above the head lifting, and how to plan and execute any type of lift or carry correctly.

Use this course to help healthcare workers to develop an instinct for using correct lift and carry practices and thinking the lift or carry all the way through before attempting it.
