  1. Back Facts It is estimated that 8 out of 10 Americans will have a back injury sometime during their lives. Preventing a back injury can be as simple as learning proper lifting and material handling techniques, eliminating excess body weight, strengthening neglected back muscles, and adopting good posture habits, with your three natural back curves in their normal position at work, home and play. The personal pain and inconvenience causedby back problems cannot be measured. It can be calculated in dollars and cents: Back injuries cost employers an estimated$6.5 billion a year. Prevention is the best insurance! You are the key. Step 1: Keep your back in mind Step 2: Think ahead, mentally lift the load first Step 3: Get help, if the load is too bulky Step 4: Unlift, apply the same lifting techniques in reverse Don’t jerk as you lift; too sudden a motion can injure your back Don’t turn without moving your feet — you’ll twist your back Don’t reach — move closer to the load or move the load closer to you Remember Push, don’t pull Move, don’t reach Squat, don’t bend Turn, don’t twist Confidential-Client Use Only
